Love me, Love my robot
BioCentre, a UK think–tank based in Westminster concerned with the ethical, social and political implications presented by new emerging technologies. recently published a horizon scanning paper ‘Love me, Love my robot?’.
This the primary output of a small research project BioCentre conducted in 2015–16. The purpose of the project was to help build the agenda concerning the key ethical and social issues surrounding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics in the care of the older person.
Striking a balance between needing to make sense of information in order to inform better decision–making and the need to provoke and disrupt commonly held assumptions, by asking fresh questions the short paper sets out the key questions that help to build the agenda on what needs to be addressed as the pace of change and innovative continues.
