Safety 5.0: new scenarios for a changing world of work

Italy , Trento, Italy

The seminar provides an opportunity for reflection and exchange on the topics of health and safety in the workplace in light of the profound changes that the use of advanced digital technologies, such as robotics and AI refers to systems that display intelligent behaviour by analysing their environment and taking actions – with some degree of autonomy – to achieve specific goals. AI-based systems can be purely software-based, acting in the virtual world (e.g. voice assistants, image analysis software, search engines, speech and face recognition systems) or AI can be embedded in hardware devices (e.g. advanced robots, autonomous cars, drones or Internet of things applications). , are bringing to the organizational and production processes of companies...
