PODCAST | "Make Robots Safe" with Eduard Fosch Villaronga

Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence JUST-AI


Fairness (in particular procedural fairness) is not only an abstract concept reserved for academics and regulators. It is a concept with real-life implications that people from all venues of life reflect on, especially in the face of new technologies such as AI.

For the purpose of starting a general conversation on fairness from a variety of vantage points and for the purpose of sharing insights and information beyond the confines of academia, the JUST-AI ‘Meet the Expert’ Podcast offers a unique access to audiences from around the world to discussions with experts from various fields on the ways in which AI affects and is likely to affect our understandings of fundamental societal concepts like intelligence, humanity, democracy, fundamental rights and of course, fairness.

In this first episode, Ljupcho Grozdanovski interviews Eduard Fosch Villaronga (Leiden University, ERC laureate).

How can robots and AI systems enhance the state of our health and promote inclusivity? How can care robots and recruitment algorithms be designed in order to truly enhance human abilities and equality? These are in essence the issues that Eduard Fosch Villaronga seeks to answer through the groundbreaking research he conducts within the Safe & Sound and BIAS projects.
