Interdisciplinary strengths

This spring got an inspiring start in the form of the second annual WASP-HS Winter Conference. As a meeting of The Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program – Humanities and Society, it brings together an interdisciplinary community of researchers and doctoral students affiliated with the Graduate School and its diverse research projects. As we had the pleasure of joining many inspiring discussions and debates from robotics to biohacking and from self-driving cars to the space-AI, I kept pondering about the perils of interdisciplinary collaborations in a field that is diversifying at the light’s speed, but also about the promises such alliances can bring. Perhaps, in a field that cannot be understood by individual researchers alone, unified efforts are indeed the key to progress.
