Sharing Autonomy (and Responsibility): The Robots Are Ready, Are You?
By Professor Sethu Vijayakumar. Learning and self-adapting robots have finally arrived. This lecture will look at technological advances in robotics that have made this leap possible, and open a discussion on the trade-off between autonomy and control that we are willing to admit to reap maximal benefits.
