Ethical work in progress

Nov. 21, 2016, 5:59 p.m.

Last week our European partners met in Tübingen and together they discussed about the results and main achievements concerning the first prototype. The University of Tübingen, as the German red Cross and the Spanish Society of Family and Community Medicine are closely working on scientific content, defining all types of assistance provided by the virtual agent KRISTINA. It's time to analyse the main results, sharing suggestions, expectations but it's also time to consider the ethical issues associated to technological development. KRISTINA is going to assist elderly people and migrants: human values, cultures, human interactions are leading the research.
