We-Robot-2016-web-BannerThe fifth annual We Robot conference at University of Miami School of Law celebrated its most international and interdisciplinary group of participants yet, with people across the globe attending from the US, Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Japan, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Spain, and Switzerland.

We Robot 2016 examines how 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 or requires rethinking of various policy issues.
