New technology is rapidly changing the society and affecting several of the daily goods and services we use today. Arcada wants to create a center where we can develop, test and present digital business and service solutions and make them safe, accessible and understandable for everyone.
Working life is changing when new production methods and business models are developed in a rapid pace. New technology is playing an increasingly important role in all sectors of society and creates conditions for streamlining work and processes, but also contributes to new challenges. Privatization of digital infrastructure, the spread of misinformation and increased polarization mean that curiosity, critical thinking and willingness to cooperate become qualities that all citizens need to possess.
With cutting-edge knowledge in trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI) we now want to create a learning and research environment where future digital solutions are developed. We have identified the need for a center where we can work across industries to increase understanding of the challenges and opportunities that digitalization entails. We need to create conditions for education and informing about the possibilities with robotics and AI, but also physical and digital platforms where we can develop new digital solutions.
Sustainable and ethical development of digital solutions
The new environment will bring together students, business representatives, researchers and lecturers. The environment exudes curiosity and forward thinking and will be a place for the development of secure and accessible digital solutions, which after testing and evaluation can be implemented in business and society.
To be able to build the environment we need technical, audiovisual and IT equipment that enables research, education and co-creation. Come and ensure that the experts of the future have the cutting-edge skills needed to develop new digital solutions for society's needs!
The environment will enable:
- Higher technical level of knowledge through interdisciplinary meeting and test environments
- Better conditions for research in robotics and AI
- Sustainable and ethical technical development based on research and co-creation
