STAR presented at IFAC 2023

During an exciting week in Yokohama, Japan at the triennial IFAC World Congress 2023, STAR partners had the opportunity to present and discuss significant contributions of the project in addressing the pertinent issues of human-centric AI in manufacturing.

- How to assess human centricity of AI-driven industrial systems?
- How can robots in shared human-robot spaces anticipate human movement for safer and efficient co-existence?
- How can we involve the human in the AI loop during visual quality control and what this means for changing job profiles, shifting workers to more cognitively demanding tasks?

These are based on a collaborative work between our partners: the University of Groningen, the Jozef Stefan Institute, QLector, Thales, and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland.


The IFAC World Congress is the largest event in the field of control science and technology, held every three years. It offers the most up-to-date and complete view of control techniques, with the widest coverage of application fields, and is attended by a worldwide audience of scientists and engineers from academia and industry. This year's Congress took place on 9-14 July 2023 in Yokohama, Japan.
