Ethical & Effective Human-Robot Interaction

Time Friday 4 February, 2022 at 12:15 - 13:00
Place Online via Zoom

Socially assistive robots are those which should provide some helpful function through their social interactions. This essentially represents social influence, such that we roboticists are designing AI-powered, socially persuasive robots that can induce some desirable behavior in users.

However, the design and automation of such robots represent both technical and ethical challenges and I will discuss both the tensions and opportunities that exist at their intersection.

In this context, I will draw on examples from my work ranging from the use of interactive machine learning as a tool for participatory design of AI through to social robot design as feminist activism.
