Autonomy Meets Humanity: A Discussion of Machines in Society

Join this week’s PsychEng seminar for an interdisciplinary panel discussion on the social implications of further embedding automation technologies, such as AI agents and robots, into our everyday lives.

Featuring Prof. Mark Chignell (Mechanical and Industrial Engineering), Prof. Paul Hartley (Anthropology), Prof. Yoel Inbar (Psychology), Prof. Elizabeth Page-Gould (Psychology), and Prof. Jonathan Rose (Electrical and Computer Engineering), this discussion will present our panel of experts with a series of questions to encourage productive discourse on the future of our increasingly automated lives.
