From Virtual to Tangible: The Society 5.0 Endeavor

Preliminary Program

Day 1. Introduction to Human-AI Teaming (HAT)

Day 2. Human roles & organizational setups

Day 3. Machine roles & organizational setups

Day 4. Teaming & human-in-the-loop simulations

Day 5. Synthesis on HAT: An HSI approach

Note. This entire HAT immersion will be supported by industrial use cases handled by groups of participants, supervized by instructors. A good mix of fundamental kowledge and skills (lectures by prominent experts in the HSI flied) will be cross-fertilized by hands-on exercises and meeting discussions. We will take several use-cases in aerospace, health care, oil-&-gas, railways, automotive...
