Join us at Robotronica 2017 as Professor Matthew Rimmer (QUT IP and Innovation Law Research Program) leads a discussion, in conversation with Dr Monique Mann (QUT Crime and Justice Research Centre), Associate Professor James Mullins (Deakin University) and Acting Superintendent Brad Wright (Queensland Police Services), to consider the implications of remote-controlled, fully autonomous and semi-autonomous robots as law enforcers, the types of considerations needed to ensure safe practices, and whether anxieties surrounding robotics in policing are grounded in truth or fiction.

Robotic technologies are being used globally to do what humans find too difficult, tedious, dangerous, or beyond our capacity. But the use of robots to deliver law enforcement raises new concerns, and has given rise to intense ethical debates about when and how robots are deployed by police for this purpose.

Register your attendance by Sunday 20 August 2017.
