Humans have a long history of interacting with machines and technologies. Today, we are on the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution: robots, AI, and machine learning are transforming labor practices and introducing automation to many areas of social and cultural life.
The technical and ethical challenges of designing and building automated systems to interact with humans in human-built environments require creative approaches and solutions.
From social robots to medical robots to robots on the factory floor, this talk introduces some of the challenges facing robotics, and presents novel methods that combine the arts and humanities research with computer science and engineering.
