ICT In Practice 2020: In bots we trust

03/10/2019

Friday 7 February 2020 a new edition of the symposium ICT In Practice. 
ICT In Practice is a platform that offers applied research initiatives in the ICT domain and originating from the Fontys School of ICT community, the opportunity to demonstrate insights, share knowledge, discuss results and initiate future and new projects. Furthermore IIP wants to contribute to the knowledge, understanding and vision on applied research.

The annual ICT In Practice symposium provides our community with an inspiring programme of expert talks, relevant projects and products, theme related discussions and the possibility to match with new and existing partner.

Theme IIP 2020 is "In bots we trust" and 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.
