PAX East 2015 – A Study in Chrome: The Ethics of Silverside

Should robots be given guns? Should robots be used as sex workers? These are among the many interesting ethical questions raised by Penny Arcade’s “Automata: Silverside”.

While “Automata” may be a work of fiction, robot warriors and robot sex workers are not; they are in use today, for better or worse.

Join researchers from the field of Human-Robot Interaction for a conversation on robot ethics, and learn what today’s leading robot-ethicists have to say about the ethics of “Silverside”.
