As robots change daily life and commerce, governments will also need to change in response to this new technological challenge. This paper examines the kinds of government institutions U.S. federal policy-makers will need to develop and implement policy for the revolution in robotics. (The institutions that will be established after the robot revolution to govern humanity will be discussed in a subsequent paper.)

Broadly, the American people will want their government to support research in robotics, regulate robotics, manage robotic crises (such as dangerous autonomous behavior), and help society adapt to the broader changes wrought by robotics. This paper, using the organizational theory and bureaucratic politics paradigms, provides a menu of institutional options for dealing with this emerging technology.

Aaron Mannes will present Institutional Options for Robot Governance on Saturday, April 2nd at 10:00 AM with discussant Harry Surden at the University of Miami Newman Alumni Center in Coral Gables, Florida.
