[robotics-worldwide] [News] ETHICS IN ROBOTICS AND AI: Course materials based on Science Fiction

Carme Torras
Dear colleagues,

Roboethics is attracting a lot of attention nowadays and many
initiatives have emerged. I tried to contribute by developing teaching
materials based on Science Fiction. MIT Press is now freely distributing
to instructors these online materials based on my book /The Vestigial
Heart/ <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__mitpress.mit.edu_books_vestigial-2Dheart&d=DwID-g&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=UOJQXU0rFo2SRnAna2ieWHIhV7R-3GnDpf31kPedzZU&s=F1YlGgfWzBSz7Ou-Mkgq1W6zWaLiQBorrjlN3Y2T6xo&e=>.



It is my pleasure to tell you some details about this initiative:

> The book is intended as a guideline for a course on /Ethics in Social
> Robotics and AI/, including four items:
>
> - An award-winning *Science Fiction novel* about a future society in
> which people rely on personal-assistant robots to navigate daily life.
>
> - An *appendix* providing readers with a list of ethics questions
> raised by the novel, as well as hints to trigger a debate.
>
> - An *online teacher's guide *for 6-8 sessions on "Ethics in Social
> Robotics and AI" following the chapters in the novel and including
> scholarly references for further reading.
>
> - A *100**-slide presentation *that teachers can use and extend as
> desired.
>
> If you are interested in delivering a course or seminar related to
> this topic, MIT Press provides teachers with the aforementioned
> /Instructor Resources/, which are sent free of charge after filling in
> a form, which you will find below the book cover on this webpage:

I would appreciate if you could forward this information to people that
may be interested in either a robotic fiction novel or the associated
ethics materials.

Many thanks for your support to this initiative,
