Robot Ethics: Advances and Challenges in Medical Robotics
A dedicated event exploring the ethics of robotics in medical research, organised by Dr Christos Bergeles in associated with the Institution for Engineering and Technology on 23 February.
About this event
Medical robotics is a field that is rapidly evolving. New systems with the capacity to not only augment human capabilities but also to fuse with the user’s cognitive system and autonomously provide context-aware assistance are emerging. This event will cover the aspects of state of the art and future research directions in medical robotics, the ethical concerns of cognitively and mentally fusing such devices with the human user, and the challenges of translating such systems into practice.
Join the debate around the ethics of medical robotics with Professor Guang-Zhong Yang from Imperial College and Dr Catherine Easton from Lancaster University.
Date & Time: 23 February 2017 – 18:00-19:30
Location: The Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2 Savoy Place, London, WC2R 0BL
