Fronteiras XXI: A Debate on the Future of Work
Carnegie Mellon University’s Head of Machine Learning Department and CMU
Portugal PI, Professor Manuela Veloso was one of the guests on the episode of “Fronteiras
XXI”, a television program in debate form, on public television network RTP 1.
The theme was “What will the future of work look like?” and the other guests
present were António Moniz, sociologist and professor at Universidade Nova de Lisboa
and Inst. Karlsruhe; Manuel Carvalho da Silva, University of Coimbra professor
and former CGTP (Portuguese labor unions) leader; and João Paulo Oliveira, CEO
of The Navigator Company.
The debate focused on the predictions of the coming effects of what is
called the fourth industrial revolution, that will be an increasingly automated
business world. A video report was shown at the beginning of the program, that featured
Pedro Oliveira, Patient Innovation co-founder and Principal Investigator for
the TEIPL project and professor
at Católica-Lisbon School of Business & Economics, talking extensively
about the subject as well. The AHA: Augmented Human
Assistance ERI was another CMU Portugal Program project that was
referenced, with the presence of its robot, Vizzy.
