Golden Keynote session

  • Prof. Dr. Emile Aarts
    In 1998, Emile Aarts launched the concept of Ambient Intelligence (AmI). He explains why and how the concept must be updated.

  • Prof. Dr. Kevin Warwick
    His research on robotics and biomedical engineering included experiments linking his own nervous system directly to a computer and to the internet. He is involved in the social debate of research.
