Australia-France Forum on Human-Machine Relationship
Time & Location
About The Event
Intelligent systems, such as robots or Artificial Intelligences, are being increasingly adopted into our everyday lives. As a result, Australian and French societies are experiencing rapid technological changes which need to be studied. Creating robots interacting with humans in a social context requires an introduction of a ‘social structure’ which guides and limits behaviour of such machines. The goal of the project is to develop a discussion between Australian and French scholars from social sciences and Humanities on their sociological understanding of the human-machine relationship. The Sydney Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems, at the University of Sydney and the School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences will gather French and Australian experts to hold a forum to initiate and strengthen collaborations on the deployment of new technologies and sociological concepts employed for understanding intelligent systems in both countries.
