Why the world needs a Quality Mark for Robotics & AI
Interview Aimee van Wynsberghe at AI for Good Global Summit 2019
The developments in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence surface questions: Can these technologies survive without public trust?
Quality Mark for Responsible Design, Development and Use of Robotics and AI
The number of robot applications in key areas such as deliveries, autonomous transport, policing, the service industry, entertainment, elder care, child care, medicine, surgery, healthcare and agriculture is massively increasing.
The worldwide proliferation of these Robotics and AI technologies is beginning to impact significantly on human lives. Despite its touted successes, cracks are beginning to appear, and questions are beingasked about social justice, gender and race bias, as well as about privacy and the erosion of other human rights.
We want to do for Robotics what Fairtrade did for coffee
The responsible use of Robotics and AI has great potential benefits for humanity, from monitoring and repairing climate change destruction to assisting in the early diagnosis of diseases. But if these technologies are to truly succeed in making our world a better place, the public must be able to place their trust in it. This why the Foundation for Responsible Robotics and Deloitte are working on the FRR Quality Mark for Responsible Robotics.
Aimee van Wynsberghe, Assistant Professor, TU Delft and Co-director of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics elaborates on this topic in the interview below.
