On Friday Oct 30, Aimee van Wynsberghe, Filippo Santoni De Sio, and Maartje de Graaf (from our Robotics Task Force) organized a 3TU sponsored workshop entitled “Bridging the gap between HRI and robot ethics research” in conjunction with the International Conference on Social Robotics in Paris, France. The format of the workshop was to bring together a panel of leading robot ethics scholars with robotics researchers struggling with ethical issues in their own work. The event was quite successful in encouraging meaningful and collaborative thinking between the disciplines. The organizers are currently pursuing to compile and edit a special issue based on selected workshop contributions. For more info on the workshop click here.
