New materials and autonomous systems

-
Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Panel
german language

Autonomous vehicles, learning machines and robots – the smart connection of new materials with digital control enables us to develop a new generation of autonomous systems. These systems will change our everyday lives. What opportunities can we expect? What risks should we anticipate? What developments does the division of labour between man and machine entail?
