How to develop human-robot interaction more responsibly
What strategies and measures are currently undertaken to facilitate the emergence of a culture of responsible robotics? The EU-funded ECURES project will answer this question. Specifically, it will bring a sociological perspective to the field of human-robot interaction and the field of roboethics, where the ethical aspects of the design, development and use of intelligent machines are discussed by professional philosophers. By focusing on social robots (which use an AI system designed to interact with humans), the project will explore which efforts are taken currently to connect the mindsets of robotics engineers and philosophers, as well as other experts from the Humanities, so that ethical considerations can be productively integrated into design and use of social robots.
