ICT In Practice 2020: In Bots We Trust

Robots are becoming co-bots. We trust our car navigation kit more than the skills of the one sitting next to us. Self-driving cars are considered the safest. Planes can not fly anymore without working algorithms. Artificial intelligence and a ubiquitous internet of things, dramatically change the once so profoundly instrumental relationship between humans and their man-made environment. In the brave, new future anything around you may become smart, collecting data, monitoring you and even making decisions.

IIP 2020 takes you on a journey into that bot-dominated society of tomorrow. Socially aware artificial intelligence is a rapidly advancing technology. Smart devices are already able to read our emotions and detect our intentions even more accurate than we can. In turn they are able to express feelings in their communication with us. Whether this will lead to a more humane or an uncanny future, is up to us.

From the robustness of the hardware for IoT-devices to the ethical value-system baked into the algorithms that control them, building trust in technology will be crucial.
