Location: Pennsylvania Convention Center
Participants will discuss general concerns related to the adoption of robots: (1) robot safety, (2) robot morality, (3) the impact of the human-robot relationship on social norms, and (4) the robot’s potential to be used as a means for manipulation/deception. The presenter will provide a brief introduction on a robot and the capabilities of an AI (artificial intelligence)-powered robot. The session participants will also explore (a) what kind of robots we may see at libraries, (b) what kind of human-robot interactions may take place, and (c) what type of human-robot relationship may facilitate the library robot’s intended use.
