What are the challenges facing governance and regulation of emerging robotic technologies? Peter Asaro of the New School, Jason Millar of Queen’s University, Kristen Thomasen of the University of Ottawa, and David Post of the New America Foundation discuss the issues in this We Robot 2015 panel titled “Robot Governance”.

Robotics, in all its forms, promises to deliver any number of benefits to society. But the nature of these automation technologies also introduces a novel kind of engineering design problem, and related governance issues. How can we can apply lessons learned from other technological revolutions in our dealings with robots? And how can the legal history of automobile safety regulation help us to identify lessons for domestic drone surveillance?
