Ethical Issues of Open Ended-Learning in Autonomous Robots
The International Conference on Development and Learning (ICDL) and the International Conference on Epigenetic Robotics (EpiRob)
September 18, 2017
Open-ended learning robots might develop behaviours, motivations and goals that cannot be anticipated at design time, posing important ethical issues regarding the future of robotics. How can we manage our interactions with autonomously developing machines that might be driven by both extrinsic and intrinsic motivations, might change indefinitely their behaviour, and might even acquire an intelligence similar to ours? This Workshop addresses these important topics with speakers coming from different disciplines, with keynote presentations and a final round table.
