Sara Lopez. Yuman: addressing one of the major challenges facing healthcare: the nursing shortage. The goal of Human is to free up nurses from simple but time-consuming tasks so they can instead focus on care tasks that require a human touch. To achieve this, Human create innovative robots that assist nurses as ‘transport buddies’ that can automate the transport of food, medicine and laundry in hospital wards. They are addressing robotics from a fresh and innovative perspective, developing a solution that can solve real problems and help improve everyone’s lives in collaboration with nurses and different Danish Hospitals.

MIA Dand. CEO & Founder. Lighthouse3, Building the Tech futures we want. women in ai ethics™
Prejudicial notions about who is an “expert” have led to a critical diversity gap in the tech industry. These biases lead to flawed technology solutions, which further exacerbate gender and socio-economic inequities. As the founder of Women in AI Ethics, a global organization with a mission to increase representation, Mia Dand challenges the harmful stereotypes and tropes that are rampant in this space. Mia has led hundreds of technology projects, educational events, and conversations over the past decade as part of her effort to democratize access to emerging technologies. In her thought-provoking talk, Mia will inspire the audience to reimagine the tech industry as a diverse and inclusive space without artificial boundaries or techno-elite gatekeepers. She will share the vital role of lived experiences in developing human-centric solutions and the urgent need for more multi-disciplinary perspectives in technology development. Join Mia as she maps out new pathways into the AI & emerging tech space and helps us visualize our collective roles in building the tech futures we want.
Mia Dand, CEO and founder of Lighthouse3, advises global organizations on responsible innovation at scale with emerging technologies. She is exceptionally skilled and experienced at leading large scale technology programs with cross-functional teams at the intersection of technology, business, and governance.
For over a decade, Mia has hosted 100+ virtual and in-person tech events to democratize and expand access to new technologies for folks outside of the big tech-academia bubble. She hosts educational events and informative Twitter chats (@MiaD) to raise awareness about ethical issues in AI and highlight the work of BIPOC experts in this space.
Mia is also the founder of Women in AI Ethics™ global community dedicated to increasing recognition, representation, and empowerment of talented women in this space. She created the first ‘100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics list in 2018, which is now published annually, and funded an online directory as a helpful resource for hiring managers and AI conference organizers to recruit more diverse talent.
Mia is on the Selection Committee for Anita Borg ABIE Social Impact award committee and on the Advisory Board for Carnegie Council’s Artificial Intelligence & Equality Initiative. Her work has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, and Venture Beat.

cristina andersson. CEO Develor. AI & robotics for sustainability - how technology can help fight the climate crisis and create positive impacts. Ideas and examples.
Major development trends, such as digitalisation and the fight against climate change, affect the operations of every company. Digitalisation, AI & Robotics can contribute to the green transition, but the themes are not automatically linked in a sustainable way. When talking about a green transition, in addition to reducing the negative effects alone, we should move on to talking about an active handprint, how companies make a positive social and ecological impact with the help of technologies.

Introduction to ASTA
We will get a short intro to the new Autonomous Systems Test Arena ASTA ( see a 5 min video about it presented by Associate professor Matteo Fumagalli)
ASTA: DTU offers a world-class integrated infrastructure for testing cutting edge innovations and new knowledge for ground, aerial and marine autonomous systems. The facility is the hub where research, innovation and education meet with industry to trigger new scientific questions, foster take-up of scientific advancements, develop industry-academia collaborations and provide means for testing and demonstrating innovations in the field of autonomous systems.
12.15 - 13.00
Visit the new autonomous systems test arena at dtu
From 13.20 PM you are wellcome to visit the new Autonomous Systems Test Arena at DTU that opened in the autumn 2020. Christian Andersen will introduce you to the building – he will tell about the site and you can ask questions.
We will show you the way when we finish – to ASTA. ASTA is one of few places in the world where robots in the air, on the ground and underwater can be tested in the same building
End of the day
