Complete speech [IT LANG]
Robotics, home automation and sensors for an aging society? In Verona we have an excellent center in this regard. The research deals with exploiting robotics to improve and monitor treatments but also mobility, we think of exoskeletons.
But also artificial intelligence can intervene in cognitive support, in this field there are many studies in particular in support of surgery or in the recognition of the onset of diseases. We must design solutions that are respectful of ethics and communication and new types of education and training must be developed to allow the conscious use of new technologies without being dominated by them.
