Event Type

The UOEH International Symposium 2024 will be held on November 8-9, 2024, at the University of Occupational and Environmental Health (UOEH) in Kitakyushu, Japan. The symposium will address the theme, “Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Human Factors and Ergonomics: How Should We Apply Disruptive Technologies to Occupational Health?” The event will feature poster discussion sessions and will be accessible both in-person and online.

AI has emerged as a transformative technology across multiple fields, capable of analysing extensive physiological data obtained from workers and patients through the Internet of Things (IoT). This capability enhances the value of information, contributing to health promotion and optimal treatment practices. The focus on digital transformation (DX) underscores the rationale for selecting this year’s theme.

The symposium will critically examine the dual impacts of AI on occupational health, balancing its potential to enhance labour productivity with the introduction of new occupational health challenges. Human Factors and Ergonomics serve as crucial disciplines in mitigating these challenges by optimizing the interactions between humans and system components, thus fostering efficient, healthy, safe, and fulfilling work environments.

The conference will feature a comprehensive exchange of scientific views on the application of AI in digital health technologies, robotic and autonomous systems, and human-robot collaboration. It will explore current and future research directions in occupational health within the AI era and aim to strengthen networks among researchers and practitioners across industry, academia, government, and private sectors in Asia.

Participants are encouraged to contribute to the poster sessions, and the symposium aspires to generate innovative and positive expectations for the future of occupational health amidst rapid technological advancements.
