The TUM Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence invites experts from all over the world to talk about ethics and governance of AI. These events serve as an important platform for sharing new research and exchanging knowledge.

Join us for a thoughtful discussion on the evolving field of assistive robotics.

As populations worldwide age and disabilities affect many, innovative applications of robotics and related technologies hold promise to enhance independence, quality of life and inclusion. Through interactive presentations and open panel discussions, participants will explore recent developments and opportunities in this important domain. Insights from diverse perspectives, including engineering, healthcare, rehabilitation and human-factors will be shared.

The topic of this event will be ‘Advancements in Assistive Robotics: A Dialogue for Progress’

We are pleased to announce the speakers for this session are Katrin Schulleri and Patrick Hung.

Katrin Schulleri is a doctoral candidate at the Human-centered Assistive Robotics group at the Technical University of Munich where she is involved in the interdisciplinary project titled ‘The Active Self’, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Within this project, researches human balance control, interpersonal light touch and robotic and wearable devices. She received her Bachelor’s degree in “Sports- and Health Sciences” at the Technical University of Munich in 2015. In her bachelor thesis, she investigated the effect of light touch and auditory cueing on postural stability and gait patterns in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy. In 2019, she completed her Master of Science degree in “Diagnostics and Training”, and was a recipient of the Dr. Gertrude Krombholz Prize 2020, which is awarded to the three best theses in the field of applied sports science.

The title of her talk is ‘Factors Facilitating Human Balance Control: The Role of Body Representations and (Bio-)Feedback’

Patrick Hung, PhD, is a Professor and Graduate Program Director of Computer Science at Ontario Tech University, Faculty of Business and Information Technology. He is a Leverhulme Visiting Professor at Aston University, England, and an Honorable Guest Professor at Shizuoka University, Hamamatsu, Japan. Dr. Hung worked with Boeing Research and Technology in Seattle on aviation services-related research with two US patents on the mobile network dynamic workflow system. He is a founding member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Services Computing and IEEE Transactions on Services Computing. In addition, he is an editorial board member for the IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management and a coordinating editor of the Information Systems Frontiers.

The title of his talk is From Anthropomorphic to Zoomorphic Social Robots: Our Experiences’
