European Societal Challenges: The Future of Human-Robot Interaction

Research and Science
Date: Wednesday, 06 February 2019 15:30 - 18:30

Venue: European Parliament, A1H1  |  City: Brussels

Increasingly rapid technological innovation is bringing the possibility of human-robot interaction closer to our daily life. It follows then, that we need a standardised framework to address the ethical and safety issues that arise. A recent statement issued by the Commission about artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous systems indicates the high political priority of this issue.

 

The White Rose Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York (UK) are holding an event to share their research excellence in this field. Drawing on evidence from multiple disciplines, we will examine the role that technology could play in our future lives and its impact across society. Experts in the field will facilitate policy-relevant discussions on the importance of creating an institutionalised framework to pre-emptively address possible legal, ethical and safety issues.

 

Hosted by John Procter MEP and chaired by Professor Hai-Sui Yu, University of Leeds there will be Panel contributions from: Christiane Woopen, Chair of the European Group on Ethics, DG Research and Innovation (tbc)Professor Pietro Valdastri and Professor Robert Richardson, University of Leeds on the impact robotics innovation can have in our daily lives; Professor Tony Prescott and Dr James Law, University of Sheffield on the importance of responsible design and the need for industry expertise to do this; and Professor John McDermid from the University of York showcasing research excellence of safe and dependable robots and autonomous systems. With the rush in technological advances, current attempts to address ethical challenges form an unrelated set of initiatives. This highlights a need for collaboration between researchers and policymakers so as to coherently address the problems of tomorrow, today.

 

After the Panel, there will be a Q&A session and discussion of the research and its application to future policy. A networking reception from 18:30 onwards will follow the event.

Register here today.
