On April 4–5, 2019, at the invitation of the Polish embassy in Sweden, we are participating in the International Science Festival in Gothenburg. In the common exhibition stand of the Visegrad Group countries, we will present the results of our recent work on the Toucan Eye project.
Technology that helps to see more
Toucan Eye is a mobile electronic device that supports visually-impaired people. This innovative solution uses the latest developments in the area of Artificial Intelligence – machine learning and neural networks.
During the Festival, we will present the progress of our work in the project. The solution is currently in the research-development phase – it will be premiered at the end of 2019.
International Science Festival
One of the largest events of this kind in Europe and Sweden’s largest festival, the Gothenburg Science Festival is dedicated to environmental, social and economic issues that our societies face today. Its aim is to promote a positive attitude towards science and research, as well as to create a common space for knowledge sharing for the research community.
2019 brings another edition of the Festival that first took place in 1997. The main theme of this year’s meeting is “Astonishing Thought”. This year, the organizers will look at what happens in our brains when we think.
The importance of technology for human development will also be discussed. What happens when we transfer the thinking process to machines and robots, and “I” is not always a human being? What happens if machines become smarter than humans? These and other questions will be answered during the April meeting.
