A Discussion About Issues of Ethics in Robotics

Ross Knepper, Cornell University


Every engineer has a duty to be aware of the ethical implications of their work.  How could their technologies be used or misused?  What are their impacts on society?  Robotics technologies have the potential to transform society, with impacts on the economy, social relationships, care giving, jobs and work, safety, and many more.  Please come prepared with questions and thoughts about the consequences of robots on society and the world.
