I’ll be attending HRI 2015 in Portland this upcoming Monday, March 2, to participate in this exciting workshop. The workshop will feature three panels dealing with the broad topics of: Healthcare; Morphology; and Autonomy. I’ll be participating on the Healthcare panel, but to be honest, I’m looking forward to them all equally.
According to the organizers:
This workshop aims to build a cross-disciplinary bridge that will ensure mutual education and grounding. It has three main goals: 1) Cultivate a multidisciplinary network of scholars who might not otherwise have the opportunity to meet and collaborate, 2) Serve as a forum for guided discussion of relevant topics that have emerged as pressing ethical and policy issues in the HRI field, 3) Create a working consensus document for the professional community that will be shared broadly.
The organizers have put together a stellar group of experts! You should take a look at the workshop website for a full list of participants, and for links to the various papers and questions submitted by researchers and students that will help frame the day’s discussions.
I’ll try to post a follow-up to the day’s activities, but you’ll also be able to follow the discussion via hashtag #HRIETHICS.
