Social Robot Futures

About

Social Robot Futures is a venue for discussing how AI and robotics are changing what it means to be “human,” what “intelligence” stands for, how bodies and the Earth “matter,” and who counts as socially “productive.” Given big tech’s faith in algorithms and its plans for “AI everywhere,” the site hosts research into the industry’s founding assumptions in fiction, myth, and religion, and highlights debates in which “our future” with AI is at stake.
