The Italian Cultural Institute in Brussels is organising a debate on artificial intelligence and ethical implications on 22 February. Elio Tuci, Professor at the Faculty of Informatics at the University of Namur, Belgium, and Dominique Lambert, Professor of Logic, Epistemology, Philosophy of Nature, Philosophy of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the same University, will be speaking about these topics at the Institute.
The event takes place as part of rIICerca, a collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute in Brussels and AIRIcerca (International Association of Italian Researchers in the World) Belgium to discuss science advances in relation to the great challenges of the future.
Drawing on the results of his own research work in the field of swarm robotics, Prof. Tuci will illustrate the different scientific interpretations of the concept of autonomy in robots. Prof. Lambert will instead discuss the ethical aspects of the development and use of “autonomous” robots. Fabio Pinna, aerospace engineer and co-founder and President of the Belgian Chapter of AIRIcerca will coordinate the debate.
