The Meeting of the Socials: the importance of Social Sciences whilst developing Social Robots

18 maj 2022, 12:00–12:30

The event has passed.

Welcome to a presentation that touches upon the fast-growing, full of imaginaries deriving from sci-fi, seemingly futuristic: social robots.

Social robots are making headway across various industries, said to alleviate the workload and also provide additional care to the end user. However, despite social robots making advances, there is a growing need to be critical of this human-robot interaction entering sensitive sectors, such as healthcare. Laetitia Tanqueray, a socio-legal scholar, explains what the issues at hand are, and how as a society we need to reflect on what we should expect from new digital technologies.
