The UK government and parliament (2018 UK Parliament’s POST report on Robotics in Social Care) have identified the need to support research and innovation in the field of robotics and AI for health and social care. This is in response to the expected growth in needs for the ageing population, and the contribution AI and robotics technologies can offer.
This collaborative workshop will take place at the Alan Turing building at University of Manchester.
