open in viewer

This project aims to provide an interactive tool that can be used by engineers as well as the general public to learn about ethical implications in the field of robotics. Our goal is to initiate discussions, inspire people to investigate these topics further, and bring to light issues that are less commonly addressed. These issues include how robots can challenge humans’ sense of identity, ways that robots can perpetuate biases and discrimination, and the challenges of determining the responsible party when a robot causes harm. To realize our goal, we created a website that presents accessible stories, thought-provoking ethical questions, and resources on ethical implications of major robotic domains. After viewing our website, individuals will gain knowledge on primary robotics topics and the related ethical problems behind each of the application domains.
