Event details

The talk will give an overview of the Assuring Autonomy International Programme, a five-year, £10m programme supported by the Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the University.

The programme is focused on how to assure (gain confidence in) and regulate robotics and autonomous systems, including those that use artificial intelligence.

The talk will give an overview of the main strands of the work, in accessible terms, highlighting some of the ethical, regulatory/legal and social issues that are raised by the technology. It is hoped that the talk will identify areas for future collaboration with the programme.
