Panel Discussion: Responsible Robotics: Shaping a future with robots worth wanting
The series began with an engaging, and very informative panel discussion held downtown at Wolf Hall on March 15. The diverse backgrounds and expertise of the panelists made for a lively discussion, and the thoughtful questions from the audience made for a fantastic Q&A.
