UK launches social care robot challenge

The Challenge runs from now, and will culminate in a daylong public presentation of collaborative learnings in Central London on Friday June 30, 2017, during the second annual UK Robotics Week 2017 (taking place from 24th – 30th June 2017).

The collaborative research themes will be agreed via themed workshops to be held during Spring 2017, addressing issues including assisted mobility; personal hygiene; social support; preventative and rehabilitation monitoring; remote assistance; and food preparation.

AI ethics under scrutiny

Initially funded with $27 million from the Knight Foundation; LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman; the Omidyar Network; the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; and Jim Pallotta, founder of the Raptor Group, the new fund will also seek to advance public understanding of AI.
