Session 5: Panel Session
16:00 – 17:00: Panel Session: C3.01
Because there’s a number of workshops on related topics on Sunday all with their own panel session planned, we have decided to fuse them all into one big panel on the topic of ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’, i.e. machine intelligence. This will be held at 5, as this is the latest panel session scheduled.

Because we are ready a bit before that, we have been invited to come all to the social and affective robots workshop, which will then be followed by the panel at that location. See for more information on that workshop.
