Ilta-Sanomat writes that the European Parliament is hoping for legislation on robotics. MEPs Miapetra Kumpula-Natri and Merja Kyllönen, who participated in the preparation of the Parliament’s report, say that heavy or dangerous tasks could be automatised in the health care sector. Ms Kumpula-Natri and Ms Kyllönen believe robotisation can create opportunities for Finns as they are fairly pro-technology on a European scale. Ms Kumpula-Natri notes that the Finnish government wants to be in the frontline when it comes to AI and that suits Finnsh who have good technical capabilities. She suggests that Finnish know-how could be put into action when new innovations are developed in the European internal market, or even outside it, as this would create prosperity and jobs in Finland.
