Robotics and Human Values

The AU Social Robotics Lab is an interdisciplinary research unit where researchers from robotics (engineering and computer science) collaborate with researchers in design, philosophy, anthropology, psychology, and cognitive science to produce research and applications in social robotics.

The lab uses the research format of “Integrative Social Robotics” (ISR).  ISR is a method which proceeds from socio-cultural values and integrates all relevant scientific expertise and stakeholder input into innovative robotics solutions that are socially and ethically desirable.

Due to its value-driven, wide-scope interdisciplinary, and fully participatory approach, the AU Social Robotics lab is uniquely qualified to address the complex technical and socio-cultural challenges that arise when robots are used within the space of human social interactions.

The AU Social Robotics Lab welcomes and facilitates MA Thesis projects from engineering, the humanities, as well as social and human sciences that lend themselves to collaborative interdisciplinary embedding.
