Conference | AI Robotics in Healthcare: A challenge for law and tech?

WhatNext.Law is pleased to invite you to the AI Robotics in Healthcare Event: A challenge for law and tech? that will take place on April 17th and 18th:
  • On April 17 we will count with the participation of some of the greatest experts, national and international, in the fields of medical law and digital law. In this session, speakers will share their insights on the use of ‘intelligent robots’ – AI-based robotics – in healthcare, namely issues such as the European legal framework on robotics and artificial intelligence, liability for damages and the risks of automation.
          This session will take place between 9am and 6pm, at the Campolide Campus of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, in English
  • On April 18, a brainstorming session will take place between the main market players on the development and production of medical devices, as well as on healthcare delivery. The aim of this session will be to understand how far these new technologies have been introduced in the Portuguese scenario and what are the main challenges they are facing.
         This session will take place between 9am and 12pm, at the António de Magalhães Cardoso Auditorium, VdA, in English.
The conference will also mark the official launch of FutureHealth, the research branch of WhatNext.Law focused on new technologies and innovation in the health field.
