TOWARDS ROBOTICS ECOSYSTEMS: FEASIBILITY AND ACCEPTABILITY
Humanity is getting better and better at building embodied (robots) and abstract (algorithms) agents which are able to perform complex tasks. These agents reached such a degree of complexity that we are not always able to explain. Moreover, they are becoming more and more integrated within human society. Are we creating a new species? A new form of (artificial) life? A robotic ecosystem? Top scientists will discuss the actual feasibility of this perspective from the technical point of view and the possible reception of it by humans.
