The robots are here. It has long been obvious that our lives are increasingly being determined by artificial intelligences and autonomous machines. The coexistence of humans and robots is no longer a science fiction vision of the future. Robots have long since found their way into factories, but robots will also play an increasingly important role in leisure time – for example as household helpers or even as social companions. To initiate discussions on the various topics related to trust in robots, the Doctoral College host a series of lectures. These lectures are open to the general public.
