ROB&AI4Social&HealthCare NTB 2019 Workshop

Title: Robotics and AI for health and social care

In 2017 the BBC Scotland announced that there will be "A robotic revolution in healthcare" and in their project "Embodied Robots for Industry Engagement & Health", Prof. Baillie and Associate Prof. Lohan have engaged and collaborated with health care provider in the UK to investigate novel ways of implementing technology into human care.

This workshop, following on from our event on the 18 October 2019, we are engaging with stakeholders and researchers out of Switzerland to open the discourse on the pressing topic of Robotics and AI for health and social care.
