Event Details

Driverless vehicles zoom down the streets. Drones soar through the air. Robots operate in hospitals around the world. Rather than relying on humans to drive, perform military operations, or do surgery, we increasingly turn to robotic systems. Using robotics successfully and safely will require coordination and teamwork between humans and machines. With this technological shift, questions about the social and ethical implications of human-robot interactions abound.

Professor Missy Cummings, former U.S. Navy fighter pilot and the director of the Duke Humans and Anatomy Laboratory at Duke University, will discuss the rise of drones and the future of robotic systems.
