Robots have the potential to increase the quality of life, even more so if they are equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Combining robotics and AI is generating endless new capabilities for robots as they understand and interact intelligently with their environment, with people, and with other machines. However, it will also disrupt and change our society in ways that are difficult to predict. Join this discussion on future challenges to prepare for, how to respond to the impacts, and how can roboticists and robotics companies can contribute.

This program is part of the Brown School’s Artificial Intelligence in the Social Sciences series.
