Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Invited to give a lecture on the ethical and social issues of robots in care for the postgraduate course: 'Ethics of Robotics and Autonomous Systems' at Edinburgh Futures Institute. This course introduces students to the new ethical challenges arising from recent advances in artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous systems. Robots and other autonomous systems are being developed for applications ranging from healthcare and elder care to policing and warfare. In this course we explore how robotic and autonomous technologies can be designed and deployed responsibly and ethically, in ways that enhance rather than degrade human capabilities and wellbeing.
