Seminar on the Future of Artificial Intelligence in the Context of Industrial Ecology

Franco Donati

The seminar is part of the Industrial Ecology Day  and it seeks to collect the community views on the current and long-term application and implications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the field of industrial Ecology (IE). 


Some of the questions we will try to answer:

  • How will industrial ecology assessment abilities be enhanced by AI applications?
  • How is data going to be collected, managed, stored and accessed by the different actors?
  • What societal and ethical benefits and risks can we identify?


The seminar is divided in two time slots:


Abstract presentations: 21st of June 7:00 - 8:45 CET
