Orientation to care robotics is more than providing technical instructions
LUT has developed new models for care robotics orientation together with Mälardalen University from Sweden and Paderborn University from Germany. Orientation to care robotics is important, because robots are constantly evolving and can perform new types of tasks.
Now is the time to seize the opportunity
The small virus has changed the media environment in a great deal. For journalists, it has been a time of extreme pressure to learn and understand and write timely coverage about the new unpredictable virus. On the other hand, during the past weeks and months, the role and importance of media has increased enormously for every individual and for the whole society.
That's why it is now time to start reflecting what has happened and what is going to happen in the media industry because of the COVID-19 pandemic, writes Associate Professor Päivi Maijanen from LUT School of Business and Management.
