If you want to prevent a smart computer from stealing your job, become a recreational therapist. If you want to do something with artificial intelligence, be sure to learn more about neuroscience. And was it such a good idea after all to implement Canvas? These and many other issues were addressed Wednesday 4 March afternoon during the symposium ‘From blackboard to black box: education and learning in the age of AI.’

Explainable AI and Conversational Agents
Explainable AI and Conversational Agents
The 4TU Human&Technology group has organized a two-day workshop on Explainable Artificial Intelligence and Conversational Agents on 24 and 25 of January 2019, in Delft, the Netherlands. Over 70 people had registered for the workshop. The program included presentations of the three Technical Universities of Delft, Twente and Eindhoven, as well as of the Vrije Universiteit, University Utrecht, Erasmus University and University of Amsterdam. Special Keynote speaker was prof Ana Paiva from the University of Lisboa, Portugal, who presented a very interesting talk entitled Robots that Listen to People's Hearts: The Role of Emotions in the Communication between Humans and Social Robots. The success of the workshop was an impulse for further cooperation between universities and researchers in the field of Human-Robot interaction.
