Exploring robotics ethics

The University of Texas at Austin’s “Convergent, Responsible, and Ethical AI Training Experience for Roboticists,” or CREATE, program launched this year with the goal of informing  trainees and graduate students on the privacy and security implications of creating robots that work alongside humans or work in homes. “Given the potentially disruptive consequences of artificial intelligence (AI)-based systems, humanity cannot afford to wait until problems arise to consider their impacts on society,” an award abstract read. “AI’s ethical and societal implications must be considered as systems are designed, developed, and deployed.”
