Innovative AI and robotic solutions drive the development of smart technologies. AI-based intelligent robots may enable maximum benefit to human productivity, health, and wellbeing. Critical to this development is the creation of safe, effective, and pleasurable human-robot interaction. Under that condition, human-centric AI systems can improve their efficiency on collaborative tasks in application domains including healthcare (mental health and elderly healthcare), mobility,entertainment, logistics, retail and manufacturing.
Central to productive and meaningful human-robot collaborations is the extent to which worker wellbeing is at the centre of the production process, and sustainable, high-quality jobs are created. A broader set of stakeholder values beyond economic growth will be taken into account, using new technologies to ensure prosperity, while respecting the limits of our planet.
