This panel discussed how artists and designers - who excel at examining the human condition - can help build robots that interact with us in more natural and human-readable ways. This is particularly important as we start to see more and more autonomous technologies creep into our lives.
- What sort of robots do we want to share our spaces with?
- Do we want them to talk to us like humans? Or should they just get on with work in the background?
- Are there cases where an emotionally intelligent robot might be valuable?
- And how can machines communicate their intentions, capabilities and limitations to untrained bystanders?
