Robots that Need to Mislead: Biologically – Inspired Machine Deception

April 19, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Please join the QUT School of Law, IEEE, Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and the Society on Social Implications of Technology (SSIT) for a distinguished lecture by Regents’ Professor Ronald Arkin from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

What can animal behaviour teach us about the need for deceptive robots? In this presentation, Georgia Tech’s Professor Ronald Arkin will discuss research for the US Office of Naval Research on deception and its application within robotic systems. Squirrels will hoard to mislead a predator and birds will mob for protection by feigning strength when none exists. How might this apply to the use of robotic systems in the military and what are the ethical implications of this research?

Speaker(s): Regents’ Professor Ronald C. Arkin,
