Updated April 9, 2013 | Check this post for our live coverage of the We Robot conference happening April 8-9 at Stanford Law School.

You can watch recordings of all the video streams below. We’ll be uploading high-quality versions next week in a follow-up post.

Discussions about drones, driverless cars, and military robots are omnipresent in mainstream media. Robotic technologies have progressed to the point where they are entering public spaces, our industries and homes. Legal and policy infrastructures are needed for a smooth transition. The second annual robotics and the law conference, taking place April 8-9 at Stanford Law School, will address these issues with the help of leading scholars, practitioners, and engineers. This year’s conference, entitled “We Robot: Getting Down To Business”, will focus on the immediate commercial prospects of robotics through panel discussions, talks, robot demos and a special guest appearance from a producer of Futurama!

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Intellectual Property
  • Tort Liability
  • Legal Ethics
  • Privacy By Design

Robohub will be bringing you in-depth coverage from the conference. For starters, we’ll be live streaming the event, look for updates to this blog post for the latest stream. You can find the full program here. Our correspondent and legal expert, Kate Darling, will be live tweeting, look for #werobot2013, or check the widget below. To wrap up, we’ll be posting several in-depth analyses in the coming weeks.

If you want to prepare for the conference, feel free to check out last year’s website, posts by the Stanford Law School blog, or our podcasts with Ryan Calo (co-organizer and chair of the conference), and Kate Darling. If you are at the conference, look for other Robohub members including panelist AJung Moon.
