About the Social Robot Futures Site

The Social Robot Futures website was launched in 2014 as part of a multi-year research project, funded by Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHCR), called “Where Science Meets Fiction: Social Robots and the Ethical Imagination.” As of spring 2021, the website is continuing under a three-year SSHRC project titled, “’AI Everywhere’: The Mythical and Religious Roots of Algorithmic Faith.”

Social Robot Futures is a source for upcoming events, news, commentary, and resources relevant to the interdisciplinary analysis of AI and robotics, as well as an archive for events, talks, and publications produced as part of the past and current SSHRC projects noted above.
