ABOUT WE ROBOT
Robotics seems increasingly likely to become a transformative technology. This conference will build on existing scholarship exploring the role of robotics to examine how the increasing sophistication of robots and their widespread deployment everywhere from the home, to hospitals, to public spaces, and even to the battlefield disrupts existing legal regimes or requires rethinking of various policy issues.
If you are on the front lines of robot theory, design, or development, we hope to see you and to enable conversations between the people designing, building, and deploying robots, and the people who design or influence the legal and social structures in which robots will operate.
