Malta Café Scientifique: The Evolution of Cobots
The robots are taking over! For years this has been a popular theme for science fiction writers, who liked to delve into the dangers and ethical issues of such a revolution.
However, we are beginning to live in an age where some of these fantastical stories are starting to feel more like reality. Malta Café Scientifique welcomes Dr Ing. Emmanuel Francalanza, an expert in working with industries to adapt conventional manufacturing machines into cyber physical systems. In some form or another, more and more people are interacting with robots and artificial intelligence every day.
Whether this be a voice powered assistant, like Siri or Alexa, or perhaps personalised adverts on the internet. However, behind the scenes, a more subtle revolution is happening in the manufacturing industry with the growth of Collaborative Robots (Cobots).
Will this affect job experience, and what are the ethical and social implications of this new age?
Tickets are free, booking required.
