The panel will start with a short summary of the state of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics at Oregon State University and how integration of policy and ethics impacts the program. Then, faculty will discuss the challenging ethical issues raised by the widespread adoption of AI and robotic technologies in areas ranging from social media and law enforcement to defense systems and health care. An ARCS Scholar and a Scholar Alum will focus on their robotic research, particularly how autonomous agents and robots interact with humans and how they perform in unknown environments.
