|Title||Policies to Promote Social Uptake of Interactive Robots|
|Organizer||Britt Ostlund (Work Package 6 leader)|
The INBOTS surveys show that there is an untapped potential for interactive robots to contribute to more sustainable and prosperous societies. Expectations of what interactive robots can contribute are high, but the development between sectors is uneven. Knowledge about the social uptake of robots among the general public is low and almost non-existent compared to the experience of using robots in industry, transportation and certain advanced parts of healthcare. The market is not enough here. Societal development needs policies and regulations. How can we promote this development? How to use policies? What good examples are there?
15:00 – Introduction by Britt Östlund who will chair the session
|11:00 – 14:00||Thursday 20|
|Title||Alternative Approaches to Liability in Robotics|
|Organizer||Andrea Bertolini, Francesca Episcopo, Erica Palmerini (Work Package 5 team)|
Within this session, invited speakers will be asked to discuss and debate on the findings of the WP5 on “Alternative Approaches to Liability in Robotics”, and in particular on the following issues:
– Whether regulation should follow a technology-neutral or technology-specific approach, and whether the liability regime should be based on the different level of risk attributed to the operation of the machine;
