robots in society: blessing or curse?

Delft University of Technology challenge

How can robots be deployed so they can actually be beneficial for our society? Should robots be able to make important decisions?

In this challenge Virginia Dignum (Associate Professor Social Artificial Intelligence) will discuss  issues relating to the Artificial Intelligence theme and in particular the question of how robots can be built in a way that reflects human standards and values. Through videos, articles and interviews you will learn that norms and values ​​can be culture-related and that this makes it very difficult to determine how robots should be developed in the future. Take on this challenge and deliberate with other participants in order to develop a groundbreaking solution that can be used by robot developers in the near future.

Commitment: 4-5 weeks of study, 1-2 hours per week. > more information
