AI and Robotics for supporting care

Following the success of the First Geriatronics Summit, the Geriatronics Team from the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) from the Technical University of Munich are pleased to announce the Second Edition of the Geriatronics Summit! 

Geriatronics Summit
July 02 - 03, 2023
Garmisch-Partenkirchen Congress Center

The second edition of the Geriatronics Summit aims to bring together researchers from AI and Robotics with care providers, the general public and stakeholders in the field of care for older adults and people with  lived experience of disability.

Particularly, the Summit aims to stimulate discussions and exchange of ideas regarding AI and robotics 
technology in the field and how they can rise to the challenges of supporting health, care, and well-being of older people in a safe, ethical, and trustworthy manner. Finally, how Geriatronics can improve and support care-givers and the community surrounding the care sector.
