From The Conference August 19, 2015

“Robot ethics is about humans.”

Kate Darling is a Research Specialist at the MIT Media Lab and a Fellow at the Harvard Berkman Center and the Yale Information Society Project. Robots are likely to take an increasingly bigger part of our lives. To understand what it means for humans and how we are going to interact with our new friends Kate will talk about her research on people's instinctual and emotional perception of robots.

A change from robots being present behind the scenes in manufacturing spaces etc. to being present in all areas of our lives is becoming a reality, whether you like it or not. Emotional affections to human alike robots are the new evolving thing. Kate takes us on the journey of anthropomorphism and what the future holds.
