UnCover Event: The Human Cost of Robots

Join University of Canberra experts and a moderating Canberra personality for a casual conversation on “the human cost of robots”. The line between humans and technology is blurring. We are creating machines that are increasingly humanlike, while embracing technology into our bodies. As technology creators, the questions we ask and the choices we make will shape our future.

So what will that future be? Are we obsolete in a time of robots? What are the ethics when it comes to AI? If a robot commits a crime, who is responsible? Join a software engineer, a robotics specialist, a journalist of the digital age, and a lawyer examining the legal ramifications of AI.

Grab a drink, some food and friends and join us for an accessible conversation about the future.
