AlanWinfieldRobots and their impact on the economy is on the forefront of everyone’s mind. Will robots increase productivity and jobs, improve society, and will wealth be shared? To address this question, we’ll be talking to three European Experts about the robot economy. In today’s interview, we sat down with Alan Winfield, Professor at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, and expert in robot regulation and ethics. He is often invited to discuss the role of robots in society, including at the World Economic Forum, the Royal Society, and the Royal Academy of Engineering.

SPARCIn this original ten-part series, we’re putting the spotlight on European Robotics. You’ll be hearing from experts about the latest robotics technology with the power to change the way we work, live, and explore new frontiers. Articles will look at 3D printed prosthetics and assistive technologies, robots for minimally invasive surgery and diagnostics, automated farming and mining, and our ability to inspect critical structures in the air and under water. We’ll be highlighting the startups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are creating new markets in robotics, or using robots to improve their own productivity. Most important, we will dive deep into questions on everyone’s mind, about the impact of robots on policy, the economy, and jobs. Articles will be published every two weeks on the SPARC website and Robohub.
