EPIC Book Sprint: Robotics & Ethics
04th - 11th February, 2019 | Singapore (NUS)
In February 2019, EPIC organized a Book Sprint on "Ethics in AI and Robotics" in Singapore. The aim? To bring together an international group of academic experts from Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore to write a entire book in just five days.
The assembled academics, who came from different backgrounds and disciplines such as computer science, philosophy, psychology, robotics, and HRI, successfully created a draft for an introductory textbook on robotics/AI ethics. Be on the lookout for the resulting book, which will be published by Cambridge University Press.
Because it's not often that so many experts from such a diverse range of fields come together in one place, EPIC took advantage of this opportunity to ask those in-the-know about the role of ethics in robotics and artificial intelligence. To hear what they had to say, watch the videos below.
