Elizabeth Jochum will explain, how can researchers employ artistic methods to engage users and help them understand these emerging technologies and their impacts on daily life?

Robot and Artificial Intelligence (AI) researchers increasingly look to the arts for creative design and control solutions for robots and other autonomous systems. The arts are also fertile ground for addressing human factors such as perception, acceptance, and ethics of robots and AI.
