The Ethical Roboticist Registration, Mon, 27 Jun 2016 at 16:30 | Eventbrite

We are delighted to have Professor Alan Winfield, from the University of West of England, delivering the first of a series of annual public lectures at this evening event. Professor Alan Winfield “Like any transformative technology, intelligent robotics has the potential for huge benefit, but is not without ethical or societal risk. In this lecture I will explore two questions:- Firstly, the increasingly urgent question of the ethical use of robots: are there particular applications of robots that should be proscribed, in eldercare, or surveillance, or war fighting for example? When intelligent autonomous robots make mistakes – as they inevitably will, who should be held to account? Secondly, I will consider the longer-term question of whether intelligent robots themselves could or should be ethical. Seventy years ago Isaac Asimov created his fictional Three Laws of Robotics. Is there now a realistic prospect that we could build a robot that is Three Laws Safe?” There will be a drinks and canape reception before the main event.  Come and join us. The event is free but registration is essential. For further information email gill.prescott@liverpool.ac.uk
