Event details

This one day workshop will explore the areas of Responsible Artificial Intelligence, Explainable AI, human-centred design, robotics, and human robot interaction and invite leading UK researchers and innovators. The event will also include a keynote from a leading international speaker.

Our society is being permeated by inter-connected intelligent machines that are becoming an important part our daily and most intimate lives. Furthermore, the leaps in AI and Machine Learning innovations (e.g., in diagnosing cancer, predicting outcomes of court cases, or in robotic warehouses), mean that many tasks requiring specialised skills will soon be automated, thereby enabling the access to advanced services and products across the world at the tap of a screen. These novel AI-driven services will involve the close partnership of humans and machines that operate in agile and flexible ways, whereby neither humans nor machines may always be in control of a system at all times (e.g., autonomous cars relinquish control in situations where sensor data is ambiguous, or teams of humans and machines working together in disaster relief operations).

There is an urgent need to develop models, frameworks, algorithms, and methodologies to ensure such teams of humans and machines are designed for the benefit of society. This means that we need to ensure such systems are safe to use, act in a responsible way, and are able to balance the ethics of their actions against utility maximising ones.
