SIENNA

Artificial Intelligence & Robotics

We interact with robots, smart devices, intelligent software, prosthetics and implants. We can benefit enormously from interacting with machines. But there are significant ethical challenges. Some of them relate to enhancing human abilities.

Artificial Intelligence and Robotics: Impact on society

More and more people have interactions with robots, smart devices, intelligent software, prosthetics and implants. They are used in industry, the education system, health care, our homes, the entertainment industry and military applications. The potential benefits are abundant. However, there are considerable ethical and legal challenges.

In order for machines to perform in an intelligent and autonomous way, they need to collect data. What do we expect from intelligent software in terms of morality? Are we willing to give up privacy and personal liberty to interact with machines? Who is responsible when a robot causes an accident? These are some of the questions that the SIENNA project will answer.
