Katie Winkle: Ethical & Effective Human-Robot Interaction
From Tatyana Sarayeva on March 8th, 2022
Abstract: Socially assistive robots are those which should provide some helpful function through their social interactions. This essentially represents social influence, such that we roboticists are designing AI-powered, socially persuasive robots that can induce some desirable behavior in users.
However, the design and automation of such robots represent both technical and ethical challenges and I will discuss both the tensions and opportunities that exist at their intersection.
In this context, I will draw on examples from my work ranging from the use of interactive machine learning as a tool for participatory design of AI through to social robot design as feminist activism.
