Robotics and AI. From Research to Society - Maritime focus sponsored by den danske maritime fond

Program for November 4th - Because of Covid 19 it has been decided to do the event Nov 4th virtually. Except visit to Autonomous System Test Arena ASTA which will still be possible.

We follow the guidelines given by authorities regarding Covid 19. Den Danske Maritime Fond has sponsored the maritime focus at RoboInsights 2020 including 50 tickets to students from all over Denmark. 

November 4th 2020 - Robotics and AI. From Research to Society

9.00 - 9.10

Welcome. Anders Bjarklev

9.10 - 9.15

About hc ørsted. Laila zwisler

200-years ago H. C. Ørsted’s deep seated curiosity led him to discover electromagnetism. However, the omnipresence of electromagnetism today is the result of the curiosity and hardwork of many individuals.

9.15 - 9.20

Robotics/ Automation at DTU: Ole ravn

9.20 - 9.50

Roberto Galeazzi. Patrizio Mariani: Robotics and AI for the Blue Economy.

Patrizio Mariani Head of Observation Technology Research Group. DTU Aqua & Roberto Galeazzi Head of Centre for Collaborative Autonomous Systems

Scope: Oceans, coastal areas and marine activities are playing a central role in the present and future of the European Union and its citizens. As established sectors of the Blue Economy further expand and new sectors emerge, there is an increasing need to establish an intelligent maritime spatial planning such that economic and social objectives can be achieved in a sustainable and efficient way. 

9.50 - 10.10

Mogens Blanke: Shipping Lab.

This presentation will show how autonomous situation awareness is a key element in a framework that, using various AI, Diagnosis and Optimization technologies, foresees critical situations, provides guidance for navigation and mitigates risks. The journey towards Denmark’s first autonomous and environmental friendly ship started in March, 2019. Almost 30 partners are working together on achieving this. 

10.10 - 10.30


4 startups at any level: from early development to growth stage

Clionadh Martin. CEO. & Vivian Li. Coalescent

Aldus von der Burg. CEO. Mailirobots

Marie Lommer Bagger. CEO Measurelet

Magnus Philip Ritzau. Co-Founder, COO RiACT

10.30 - 10.45

Coffee/ tea

10.45 - 11.15

Jens Lauritsen. Augmented and virtual reality in the maritime industry

Virsabi will show examples of effective virtual methods used for learning in the maritime industry.

Earlier cooperation with MDC and other actors in the maritime industry such as Maersk, Maersk, Training, SIMAC, Martsal Navigationsskole, MAN Energi Solutions and DESMI. Solutions for different tasks developed using AR and VR will be shown. Virsabi cannot bring demonstration systems as we do the event virtually this year. Instead Virsabi is offering you can attend a workshop January 13th 10.00-12.00 at Virsabi in Copenhagen. 

11.15 - 11.45

Lazaros Nalpantidis. Ronja Güldenring. Robotics/ automation in agriculture

Agriculture provides humans with food and raw materials although with a large impact on the environment. Precision farming is a promising pathway to increase the sustainability of farming by increasing farm profitability, reducing manual labour, and reducing environmental impact. 

11.45 - 12.45


12.45 - 13.05

claus rehfeld. AI in healthcare

The current business model of healthcare is not scalable to support the needs of the future. Therefore the future of health and healthcare is going to be defined by the ability to utilize data and technology. Transforming the delivery of healthcare from a contact to a non-contact sport and in that process AI is going to play a major role.


13.05 - 13.25

Maja Hadziselimovic
  • . Robots in corona times

Robots are around us since the 1960s to support in production, education, medicine etc. Which robots have helped us fight Covid-19, and how did they do it? Did we, humans, collaborate with them or not? How can technology help us in situations like these?

13.25 - 13.45

Anna Krzyzanowska. Nanotechnology. Printed electronics

What is the future of electronics? Can you imagine flexible electronics? How to make electronics more environmentally friendly? Printed electronics is the answer. Low weight, no need for cables and highly automated manufacturing of fully customized components. Printed electronics offers many advantages for many industries. In recent years, there has been significant interest in the applications of printed electronics in the realization of a range of electronic systems such as flexible displays, low-cost sensors, and even in novel semiconductor packaging flows. In this event we will review our progress in advancing the state of the art in printed electronics.  From e-textiles to AI: Printed Electronics a Key Technology.

13.45 - 14.15

Asbjørn Søndergaard. CTO odicO

Odico`s technology will revolutionize the way in which you can produce geometrically challenging moulds within a reasonable financial frame. 

14.15 - 14.30

Coffee/ tea

14.30 - 14.40

Christina E wanscher. Robocluster

RoboCluster is a Danish national innovation network for robotics, automation and drones. From 2021, a new national cluster will emerge, creating synergies and networks across the robotics industry

14.40 - 15.05

Anders Thomsen. Dansk erhverv

How far are we in Denmark and EU regarding implementation of advanced technology (robots: physical and software, AI etc).). Sharing of challenges and experience from selected business areas including a case or two. 

15.05 - 15.30

Cathrine Lippert. Danish Technological Institute

New Business Models. Cathrine will share insights on how to approach digital transformation from a 360-degrees perspective without getting lost or stuck.

15.30 - 16.30

Visit the new autonomous systems test arena at dtu. Open House


End of the day

”RoboCluster is supported by Ministry of Higher Education and Science and Region of Southern Denmark”

No Oticon Hall at DTU this year - The event will be virtual via ZOOM

Because of Covid 19 RoboInsights event will NOT take place in the beautiful Oticon Hall designed by Kim Utzon architect 2002. Hopefully we are back in 2021.

How do we want to live with robots. This and many more questions will be tried answered at RoboInsights 4th November 2020

Program subject to change

Are you interested in speaking?

If you are interested in speaking, please contact Marianne Andersen ma@roboinsights.com – we are especially interested in cases: where is the technology being used and what are the good/ challenging stories to tell.
