Today I gave a keynote lecture on ethics inspired robotics and artificial intelligence for the Women in STEAM event in Leiden.
The article “Brave new world: Dr Aimee van Wynsberghe straddles the worlds of science and ethics, and is shaping the conversations of both.” has just been posted online. It is also available in the print magazine. From the article:
[Dr. van Wynsberghe] reckons that given humanity’s track record with cellphones and personal computers and the environmental damage that has followed from their manufacture and disposal, or the story of exploitation of coffee farmers, or child labour in the global garment industry, “I think we can pretty safely see where we’re going to go with robotics and AI.”
This is part of the reason she is pushing so hard for a certification programme for robotics and AI, which could assist humanity and technology companies to, this time, ‘steer in a different direction’.
I was interviewed by NOS (Dutch) for an article on sex robots. You can find the article here.
I am honored to be named by BIMA (a UK Technology and Innovation network) as one of “100 AI influencers worth following”. Check out the article here.
While at ITWeb’s Artificial Intelligence Summit, I was interviewed by Matthew Burbidge. The article can be found here.
Today I spoke at the European Economic and Social Committee AI European Stakeholder Summit.
I have been appointed as one of 52 experts for the European Commission’s High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence.
The High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLG) will have as a general objective to support the implementation of the European strategy on AI. This will include the elaboration of recommendations on future AI-related policy development and on ethical, legal and societal issues related to AI, including socio-economic challenges.
I was interviewed for BBC’s Today programme this morning. My segment starts at the 2:45 mark.
