The International Conference on Field Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL) is taking place at IFI 29-31 August 2012. This is a large international scientific conference where the ROBIN group is the local organiser. About 230 attendees are expected. Feel free to register and attend. Workshops/tutorials before and after are free to attend (except SRCS) but registration is needed.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, including robots, pose challenges and opportunities for health- and home care. Amongst the relevant and essential aspects currently discussed are privacy, cybersecurity, safety, diversity, and inclusion considerations. It is also unclear what legal frameworks need to be followed to ensure user safety in highly robotic environments. The tutorial will overview the most pressing ethical and legal challenges surrounding the development and use of robots in human environments. The tutorial aims to raise awareness about these topics and engage with the community to think about ways to reduce the unfavorable impact on society. We will use the findings in an earlier launched review supplemented with recent work and initiatives in this respect. The tutorial will illustrate the challenges related to privacy, security, safety, and diversity through several examples from the University of Oslo and Leiden University.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, including robots, pose challenges and opportunities for health- and home care. Amongst the relevant and essential aspects currently discussed are privacy, cybersecurity, safety, diversity, and inclusion considerations. There is increasing attention on the ethical implications and legal issues related to robots and systems. Recently, the European Commission has proposed the new regulation on Artificial Intelligence, e.g., the Artificial Intelligence Act (AIA) (European Commission 2021a), and the New Machinery Directive (MD) (European Commission 2021b). Other important ongoing efforts are defining standards for intelligent systems and studying design with user participation. 

The tutorial will provide an overview of the most pressing ethical and legal challenges surrounding the development and use of robots in human environments. The tutorial will illustrate the challenges related to privacy, security, safety, and diversity of users through several examples from the speakers different countries. The tutorial aims to raise awareness about these topics and engage with the community to think about ways to reduce the unfavorable impact on society.
