The Swetaly University collaboration brings together Swedish and Italian universities to interact on a number of strategic areas with the aim to strengthen academic relations between the two countries. The two areas that are at focus are ageing, and artificial intelligence. Swetaly was launched in 2019 and today consists of several Swedish and Italian universities. Örebro University together with Gothenburg University is tasked with organising workshops and activities within each of the strategic areas involving researchers in both countries.

Two workshops have been organized within Swetaly on the theme of AI; in January and in September 2022.

Abstract and Talks

The theme for the third workshop will be AI for People and Society.

Artificial intelligence has an impact on almost all aspects of our daily lives. Tools like ChatGPT, Github Co-Pilot, or Dall-E illustrates only a few examples of online applications that gained attention in the last few months.

One of the fields which develops rapidly is also artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. The field has the potential to significantly impact human society and the ways in which humans interact with technology in a more physical way than with the online tools. The goal of this call for papers is to bring together experts from various fields to explore the current state and future possibilities of AI and robotics, with a focus on their integration for the benefit of humans and society.

We invite talks that address a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • The technical aspects of using AI models (e.g., perception, human-robot interaction) in robotics
  • The ethical and societal implications of AI and robotics
  • The impact of AI and robotics on professions, workforce and job market
  • The use of AI and robotics in healthcare, transportation, and other industries
  • The development and implementation of AI and robotics in education
  • The use of AI and robotics in decision-making, such as in law enforcement and warfare
  • The design and development of AI and robotics for human-robot interaction and collaboration
  • The role of AI and robotics in promoting social inclusion and accessibility
  • The challenges and opportunities for international collaboration in the field of AI and robotics

We welcome talks from a variety of disciplines, including computer science, engineering, philosophy, sociology, psychology, and law. Every accepted presentation will also have the possibility to prepare posters.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to engaging in a stimulating and productive discussion on the integration of AI for People and Society.
