As interactive robots become substantially more accessible to the general public in the near future, one of the main concerns for designers is in implementing socially acceptable and ethical human-robot interaction for non-expert users. One approach to addressing this concern is to develop a robot that can take advantage of human moral decision making – much of which are suggested to be based on intuition and strongly connected with the emotional part of the human brain, rather than the rational part of the brain. In this talk, A. Jung will present the promising, yet cautionary, tales of the moral synergy robots and humans can create.
Here are the details,
