CPH – High Tech Summit – by DTU

High Tech Summit

Be inspired. Get connected.

October 30 – 31 2019

Get ready to gain new knowledge at the leading Nordic high-tech fair.


Themes of 2019:

Industry 4.0 & Robotics

The fourth industrial revolution has arrived, making smart factories and cyber-physical systems the new norm. Novel concepts for automation are an essential part of Industry 4.0.

Big Data & Artificial Intelligence

Big Data refers to the analysis of large data sets to reveal patterns and trends, creating new business opportunities and smarter societal solutions. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the next generation of computerization. Big Data and AI are becoming increasingly integrated. While potential benefits are high, solutions need to address concerns over privacy and security.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things enables physical devices to collect and exchange data in an automated way. Typically, the devices are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network conductivity. The HTS 2018 will devote special attention to food and health cases and also to safe, ethical and socially responsible IoT solutions

Sustainable Energy, Environment & Climate

The main theme for High Tech Summit is digitization and digital transformation, which are the corner stones in DTU’s research. This year’s special focus area for High Tech Summit will be sustainability with a focus on energy, environment and climate. At DTU, we have an extensive focus on the area and High Tech Summit is a natural place to showcase it.

Business Inside Technology

While new potent technology is the very visible side of the fourth industrial revolution, innovative thinking within a given company is just as important. Corporations looking to get onboard Industry 4.0 need to assure that their organization is ready for the digital transformation.


The fourth industrial revolution not only calls for new solutions within existing companies, but also promise vast opportunities for creating new companies tailor made for the digital future.

For the Global Goals

The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out the biggest global challenges such as health threats, food and water scarcity, discrimination and poverty. Technological development in collaboration between research and business is key to meeting these goals.

CPH – Evaluation Seminar for PhD student Léonard Van Rompaey: Legal Disruption by Artificial Intelligence – by University of Copenhagen

All interested are kindly invited to participate in Léonard’s evaluation seminar of his PhD-project, entitled:

Legal Disruption by Artificial Intelligence: a Study of the Incompatibilities Between Law and Robots

A short, updated description of the project is available here.

“My research focuses on artificial intelligence’s legal disruption. Where does law fail to regulate robots? With very little deployment, we are already identifying legal challenges to the incorporation of artificial intelligence and autonomy in healthcare, transportation, warfare and many other areas of human activity. I try to identify and better understand the common denominators to the symptomatic disruptions that appear in various legal fields. The first common element is artificial intelligence, and I explore the exceptionalism of this technology in comparison to previous innovative disruptions. The second common element is the law itself.

I try to expose law as a deeply anthropocentric concept, using tools from cognitive neurosciences, behavioural economics and theory of law. When we try to regulate robots as objects (as we do with cars) the law fails to acknowledge the agency of the robot, which intervenes actively—not randomly or predictably—on the outcome from the action. When we try to regulate robots as agents, tensions and abrasions appear because of the human nature of law, a tool made by and for human beings and curtailed to constraining our behaviour. To address those theoretical and conceptual questions of incompatibility between the law and robotics is foundational to find answers to the symptomatic occurrences of AI legal disruption.”

The seminar takes place on Thursday 6 June 2019 from 10:00-12:00, meeting room 6B-4-04, Njalsgade 76, 4th floor, DK-2300 Copenhagen S 

External commentator at the seminar is: Bryan Druzin (CUHK)

Supervisor of the project, Hin-Yan Liu, will act as chair of the seminar.

All interested parties are welcome!

The seminar will be held in English

CPH – Tech&Law Breakfast: Blame it on the robot – by University of Copenhagen

Visiting researcher Paula Casadesus presents “Blame it on the robot: rethinking liability rules for robot harms”.

Paula Casadesus is a visiting researcher at the CILCC center, and is originally carrying out her research at the University of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca (Spain). Her research focuses on the liability for the damages caused by robots. She tries to identify where the applicable law might fail to regulate robots’ harmful actions and the difficulties and challenges of establishing a new legal framework that fits the unique characteristics of AI machines.

In this presentation, Paula will firstly analyze the concept of “smart autonomous robots”. Secondly, She will talk about the applicable law and will explain some of the challenges it may face when it comes to regulating robots and the damages they may cause. Finally, she will shortly address other proposals that have been made in order to deal with the liability issues these robots may raise.


For participation in the lecture please use this registration form no later than 2 April 2019 , 23:59.
