4TU & FRR Workshop on Ethics and Policy of Robots in Healthcare
June 25-26 2017, The Hague Institute for Global Justice (The Hague, the Netherlands)
The FRR and the 4TU are joining forces to co-organize an informal meeting aimed at discussing the role that ethics can and should play in the development of European (and International standards) for robots in healthcare. Important questions we will address are: the converging of disciplines (robotics is about AI, big data, machine learning and so on) and should a standard address all of these; healthcare as a morally charged context and the role of technology within this space; and, the role of industry/academics/policy makers in ensuring responsible technology.
After the conclusion of the workshop, the European Commission released a response to the European Parliament’s resolution of civil law rules on robotics. For this reason, the workshop participants will work on generating a white paper to discuss the issues in detail as well as respond to the points made by the commission. This white paper will be posted to the FRR website upon completion.
