Dr. Adam Bowen of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies joins us for a conversation about CareBots, robots designed to perform caregiving tasks. He will consider the ways the adoption of AI solutions and robotics technologies transforms human-to-human and human-to-machine relationships in healthcare contexts. How does it affect medical professionals, caregivers, and patients? In this guided discussion, we will address applications of AI in healthcare, the possible advantages of implementing such technologies, and some associated ethical challenges. We will focus on dynamics of care relationships, the potential for failures of reciprocity in human-machine interactions, sources of diminished patient autonomy, and possible ways to mitigate ethical concerns when implementing social robotics in care settings.
Join us for an exciting and timely conversation on Zoom!
