Impact of standards on market creation: Case of medical/healthcare robot HAL by Cyberdyne

  • Advanced 1, Case Study 2

Innovations based on integration of cyber-physical space, for example artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and the internet of things (IoT), are taken place and rapidly changing our lives. Rapid diffusion of emerging technologies can entail risks and uncertainties from a safety aspect and the governmental bodies had been managing such risks by means of regulation. Increasingly, it falls short on responding to new technologies, as the rate of change and degree of uncertainty augmented. These can pose challenges to government in dealing with disruptive innovation because such innovations often do not come under the existing product categories nor corresponding regulations.'s Training Academy provides real-life case studies, showcasing lessons learned on how standards like ISO 13482, as demonstrated by Cyberdyne's case, can drive market creation for emerging technologies while ensuring safety and regulatory compliance.

Discover the conversation on how standards and regulatory mechanisms can foster market creation for emerging technologies! Explore the case of Cyberdyne and learn how international safety standards like ISO 13482 can pave the way for innovation. Be part of shaping policy considerations that support experimentation and a firm commitment to rulemaking, ensuring safer and more dynamic integration of emerging technologies into our lives. Take action to drive progress towards a future where innovation thrives while ensuring safety and security.
