Dear all,

Apologies for cross posting.

I’d like to invite anyone who happens to be in Paris next Monday (21st
October) to a workshop on "Public Innovation and Emerging Technologies in
Health and Social Care across Japan and Europe” at Fondation France-Japon
de l'EHESS. The central focus of the workshop will be on care robots. A
flyer with further information can be found here:
http://ffj.ehess.fr/upload/Actualites/Events/2019/2019-10-21_FFJ_MichelinWorkshop.pdf

ABSTRACT:

Public innovation policy plays a key role in the development and
implementation of new technologies in health and social care. In the
context of escalating challenges presented by aging populations and
increasing numbers of people living with chronic diseases, governments in
Japan, Europe and elsewhere are having to make strategic decisions about
allocating resources to promising but often relatively untested new care
technologies, including social robots (e.g. Paro, Nao/Zora, Pepper),
assistive and rehabilitative devices (e.g. smart walkers, exoskeletons),
tablets (e.g. iPads), AI-enabled voice assistants (e.g. Amazon Alexa,
Google Assistant), and care-related apps, to name just a few. A surge of
new devices entering the care marketplace is introducing vast complexity
related to technical issues such as big data/AI, the internet of things,
infrastructure (broadband and 5G), interoperability, standardisation,
maintenance, as well as ethical concerns around safety, data security,
privacy/surveillance, digital divides, dehumanisation of care, and impacts
on jobs and work in the field of care – to say nothing of defining and
evaluating efficacy.

This workshop will explore some of the ways in which states are negotiating
and shaping the changing technology landscape in health and social care.
