Responsible Robotics (RR-AI)

The project Responsible Robotics (RR-AI). Tracing Ethical and Social Aspects of AI-Based Transformations in Healthcare Work and Knowledge Environments. (bidt)

focuses on the ethical, social, political and legal challenges that arise through the integration of Embodied Artificial Intelligence into healthcare and society. As concrete use-cases, the project looks at a service robot named GARMI and a “smart” arm exoprosthesis .

The project is part of the transdisciplinary consortium “Digitalization”, which explores questions of the digital transition in economy and work, politics and society, as well as media and public communication. The consortium is funded by the Bavarian Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

The project is jointly led by Prof. Dr. Alena Buyx, Prof. Dr. Sami Haddadin and Prof. Dr. Ruth Müller (all TU Munich). Prof. Dr. Iris Eisenberger is involved as an international expert on a consulting base due to her expertise on legal issues related to artificial intelligence.
