Harming and Protecting Robots
Robots act more and more socially, and humans thus get more and more entangled emotionally, ethically and perhaps even legally. The workshop participants will explore the psychology of hurting and killing robots designed to bond with humans. In small groups they will make social experiments, record their reactions and contemplate potential future social and legal norms to deal with seemingly sentient robotic companions.
