Description:
Artificial intelligence brings advantages as well as risks. The huge progress in AI may have a decisive impact on high-tech assistive technologies which can change the life of disabled people.

Maurice Grinberg is an associate professor in the Department of Cognitive Science and Psychology and Research Center for Cognitive Science at New Bulgarian University. The co-founder of an ASSIST (Assistive technologies), an NGO promoting and disseminating high-tech technologies in Bulgaria with a focus on eye-control for computer access and communication for people with severe physical disabilities, has more than 100 publications under his belt. His interest in judgment and decision making in social and moral dilemmas, mind perception in robots and transhumans, eye-tracking and bio-signal recording technologies, gave him food for thoughts on the advantages as well as risks that artificial intelligence brings. The huge progress in AI may have a decisive impact on high-tech assistive technologies which can change the life of disabled people.
