Program

Feel like an inspiring conversation? An opportunity for new collaborations? Or just a stimulating encounter with a good glass of wine? Join us at the Eindhoven Innovation Café. The spot where people from the arts, design, research and technology interact. We are aiming for a weekly program full of inspiring pitches, expert talks, discussions as well as workshops, lasting up to half an hour parallel to the drinks. English spoken. Of course.

EHV INNOVATION CAFÉ #34

17:30 – 19:30 pm Drinks, bites and talks

17:45 – 18:15 pm Talk by Serena Dorrestijn & Annabella Hermans

 

Care institutions and hospitals in Europe are facing serious staffing shortages. As a result, three out of four nurses is experiencing a problematic workload and high time pressure that keeps them from doing what they value most: spending time with their patients. SARA is a smart robot that supports health care professionals in their daily tasks in monitoring and maintaining client wellbeing. It provides clients with personal attention and specialized care, and has modules for behavior analysis and medication management.

Join Serena Dorrestijn and Annabella Hermans in this week’s EHV Innovation Café and learn how they are working to reduce the workload of healthcare professionals.

EHV INNOVATION CAFÉ #35

17:30 – 19:30 pm Drinks, bites and talks

17:45 pm Talks by Female Ventures

 

We are delighted to invite you to our  first “after summer” event that will give a platform to successful and inspiring women and men. This time we chose an exciting theme of “Robot Love” that will focus on the impact of artificial intelligence on our lives and the ethical questions and dilemmas that arise as this emerging technology rapidly evolves.

Artificial intelligence is more and more penetrating our everyday life, whether we realize it or not. This phenomenon brings economic efficiencies, improved performance, higher margins for corporations and completely new products and services that we could not have imagined in the past. At the same time, emergence of AI and robots forces us to reflect on what it means to be human. Can we for instance learn from robots about love? Many assume that they have never shared intimacy with a robot, but in fact we have been connected to machines and algorithms for quite some time already! So are robots an AI a next step in our evolution or shall we fear their increasing presence? These and other AI related dilemmas will be discussed at our next event. Stay tuned.

This time we  will introduce two inspirational speakers:

Ine Gevers is a founding director of the Niet Normaal INT Foundation, developing large scale triennial art exhibitions focusing on urgent matters in society. One of her latest exhibitions, Robot Love gained a significant critical acclaim and huge popularity among its visitors.

Buster Franken is a chair of FruitPunch AI, a foundation building a community that connects and educates AI engineers of the future, with a mission to apply AI for good. In his own words, Buster defines himself as homo universalis, a jack of all trades but master of one, Data science, who is passionate about making the world a better place.
