Discussions on Ethics and Technology

The Philosophy Department invites you to join Maia Bernick ’15 for two discussions on the topic of Ethics and Technology. More specifically, the discussions will be considering the ethical dimensions surrounding the creation and use of various types of robotics. Each session will last approximately one hour, no philosophical background is necessary. Each event will start with a brief introduction to the topic and the rest of the time will consist of questions and group discussion.

APRIL 8, 7 p.m., Wyatt 109: “Can Robots Solve the Care Crisis?” We will be examining the use of Socially Assistive Robots as caregivers and medical assistants.

APRIL 22, 7 p.m., Wyatt 109: “Ethics After Dark: Human-Robot Relationships” Are there any ethical considerations that arise from relationships with robots?
