The Future Of Human-Robot Interaction | Aspen Ideas Festival 2017
The robots are coming and they’re getting smarter, evolving from single-task devices (think Roomba) into machines that can make their own decisions and autonomously navigate public spaces. From transportation systems, hospitals, and the military, to the robotization of our workplaces and households, robots will be everywhere and will increasingly interact with people. Whether you find it exhilarating or terrifying (or both), progress in robotics and related fields like AI raises new ethical quandaries and challenges to legal codes that were created for a world in which a sharp line separated man from machine.
Watch this video to hear the leading expert in social robotics and robotics ethics, Dr. Kate Darling present her "Robotic Ethics & The Future Of Human-Robot Interaction" keynote speech at the at the 2017 Aspen Ideas Festival on Thursday, June 29th, 2017. Drawing from her work exploring humans’ emotional responses to robots, Dr. Darling, a research specialist from the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, examines why people fear some robots and empathize with others, while also prompting—and answering—questions about what society’s relationship with these robots could look like in the future—and why it matters.
