Livestream - Autonomous Robotics: Ethical Challenges and Legal Repercussions

04/16/2021 09:00 am 04/16/2021 04:15 pm Australia/Melbourne Livestream - Autonomous Robotics: Ethical Challenges and Legal Repercussions

This workshop is sponsored by the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision.

What happens when a robot causes damage or harm to a person? Who is held responsible for its actions? What are the ethical concerns around using robots in human spaces, such as hospitals?

The purpose of this workshop is to demonstrate the design considerations, ethical challenges, legal repercussions and consequences of robots used in community settings, such as in a hospital. Workshop participants will witness an adaptation of a mock legal dispute which culminates in a court trial. We will take participants through the steps involved when discussing ethical challenges and resolving legal implications from robots working in public spaces. This workshop will have a key focus on events that involve robotic vision, which is the use of images or video stream collected by a robot to perform an action, such as moving around a room or recognising an item. The workshop will investigate a case study of patient harm due to the inability of the robot to respond appropriately to a medical emergency.


Who should attend?

The target audience includes university-level students in engineering or law, industry professionals, researchers, and interested members of the general community.

It is intended that people with no formal law experience or previous experience with a mock trial format will be able to follow along and take away new knowledge and learnings about the target topic.
