Ethical implications of In-Home Robots

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What can in-home robots do, and what does it take to gain control of one? This talk will include an overview of the capabilities of in-home robots and related human-robot interaction research. Come discuss the security, privacy, and ethical implications of in-home robots, the Web-based applications used to control them, and the possibility of a future where we face more threats from inside our home than out.
