Meeting at the European Parliament, December 10

ROBOTS: REALISM AND IMAGINARIES! Where is the voice of the actual users?

REELER deliver concrete policy recommendations for ethical robotics at the European Parliament, December 10.

Robots are coming out of the industrial cage into people’s everyday lives, but people working with, or being affected by, robots are not heard in decisions concerning robot technology.
The H-2020 funded REELER project will share ethnographic research knowledge of how robots affect our daily lives, work tasks, our ideas about robots, and why it is important to listen to people outside the inner circle of robotics.
This meeting delivers concrete policy recommendations for future robotics development and implementation.
Please join us for a morning meeting at the European Parliament, Member’s Salon, Tuesday December 10, at 8.00-10.00 am.
