AI for Mobile Work Machines

  • -
  • Tampere tba

FIMA and FCAI (Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence) jointly call FIMA members to the high-end workshop to hear about recent research and to discuss how to apply AI in work machines.

Artificial intelligence is expected to bring tremendous value especially in the areas where the work conditions for humans are not ideal. Bringing safe automation to those complex and unstructured environments is under active research and development currently. In this workshop we explore how AI today and in the future could support the data efficient development of safe mobile work machines operating in collaboration with humans.

Registration has now opened, reserve your workshop seat here!
