Ethical problems of robotics – actual and perceived

Workshop at the European Robotics Forum 2015

12.03.2015, 16:15-17:45

Room 2, Aula der Wissenschaften, Wollzeile 27a, 1010 Vienna

Organisation: Prof. Vincent C. Müller, Anatolia College/ACT


Robotics is moving out of the yellow cages and into mainstream industry and public perception, but robotics has an image problem: It is seen as threat to humans – to safety, to jobs, to a fair and just society. The workshop allows roboticists to better understand the perceived impact of robotics on society – and the importance of this perception for robotics funding and market uptake. The euRobotics topics group on "Ethical, legal and societal issues” supports this workshop.
