In this episode, Per talks to Pericle Salvini from Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna about his work with social, ethical and legal issues in robotics. He tells us about the Robolaw project that will provide advice to the European Union when it creates laws concerning robotics. Finally, we discuss how you can contribute to this important work.

Pericle Salvini
Pericle Salvini graduated in Foreign Languages and Literatures from the University of Pisa in 2000 with a thesis on ‘Theatre and Technologies’. In 2005, he completed a Master in Theatre Studies at Lancaster University (UK), where he delved into the telepresence artworks of E. Kac, R. Ascott and P. Sermon. In 2008, he received his PhD in Biorobotics Science and Engineering from IMT Lucca Institute for Advanced Studies and Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Italy). In his PhD thesis he studied robot design and ethical, legal and social implications. He is currently a research fellow at the BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy. His main research interests are in the fields of Human-Robot Interaction (design, human factor and social acceptance of robots), and technoethics (ethical, legal and social implications of robotics research and applications). He is also involved in activities concerning the use of robots in education and art. He is currently co-chair of the Human Robot Interaction and Communication Technical Committee of RAS-IEEE and project manager of the Robolaw project.
