Individuals on the front lines of robot theory, design, or development, come to join the conversations between the people designing, building, and deploying robots, and the people who design or influence the legal and social structures in which robots operate.
Conference History and Founding
Founded in 2012 by University of Miami School of Law Professor A. Michael Froomkin, We Robot is the most exciting interdisciplinary conference on the legal and policy questions relating to robots.
The increasing sophistication of robots and their widespread deployment everywhere—from the home, to hospitals, to public spaces, and even to the battlefield—disrupts existing legal regimes and requires new thinking on policy issues.
In this video at 5:17, Professor Froomkin discusses this conference, and he also elaborates on his areas of research - AI, the Internet, Robots, privacy - and what students interested in these areas should study.
