Robots Take the Field at Geneva AI Showcase

The AI for Good Global Summit in Geneva showcased the potential of AI technology. Prosthetic limbs that learn from users' behaviour and devices for visually impaired individuals were among the innovations on display. Students from the University of ETH Zurich developed football-playing robots to test algorithms in real-world scenarios.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) hosted the event, which highlighted the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) to transform various parts of our life.


Tomas Lamanauskas, Deputy Secretary-General of the ITU, stressed that AI is not confined to large applications but can also be integrated into daily life. AI has the potential to make a big influence in a variety of fields, including flood predictions, disaster management, agriculture, and healthcare.


The summit showcased a variety of interesting AI applications. Prosthetic limbs that can learn from user behaviour and adapt to muscle activity were on exhibit, giving amputees hope for increased mobility. Furthermore, equipment meant to aid visually impaired people in overcoming barriers in the street were displayed, offering a glimpse into a more inclusive future.


One of the event's highlights was a team of football-playing robots created by students from the University of ETH Zurich. These robots displayed excellent coordination by kicking, passing, and tracking the ball using sensor input. Jan-Nico Zaech, the project's scientific supervisor, noted that the platform was used to evaluate algorithms that could be applied in real-world circumstances.
