German researchers exhibiting at 4th AI Expo in Tokyo
The future of work offers unparalleled opportunities. From 1-3 April 2020 ten German research networks will participate in “4th AI EXPO TOKYO”, Japan’s largest exhibition on artificial intelligence.
20 researchers from 11 top-class German universities and research institutes will present their work around artificial intelligence, robotics and employment, and invite Japanese fellow researchers to discuss potential collaborations in the concepts of Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0.
The participation is part of the campaign “The Future of Work” which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Innovative research projects that will showcase their work in Tokyo include AI robots helping take care of elderly patients, robotic suits which support older employees working in industrial production facilities, and AI technologies that help humanoid robots to learn faster and more independently.
Another research project looking for collaborations with Japanese researchers has dedicated itself to improving work safety in commercial laundries by using artificial intelligence, for example by implementing sensor-controlled grippers to extract sharp items such as scalpels from hospital laundry.
Meet the researchers behind all these projects at booth 7-24 of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the General Zone! They are looking forward to discussing the future of work with you!
