The core driver of this disruption complex is robotics, producing ever more intelligent, ever more connectable artificial agents that function in ever more complex physical and social surroundings. This raises a host of complex questions for policy-makers, engineers, and researchers. Which socio-political, socio-cultural, economic, and ethical challenges will we humans be confronted with as robots will be included into more and more contexts of our everyday life? Are we bound to increase the precariat or will the ‘robot revolution’ open up new paths towards greater social justice? How should we envision robots in society?

The event with gather researchers, artists, representatives from politics, and actors of the private sector to create constructive dialogue and concrete collaborations on the joint task of envisioning robots in human societies.
