Do Robots Help us Live Better Lives?

April 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Bold questions and brilliant minds converge at CIFAR’s Virtual Talks.

Free, and open to the public, join us as we bring high-impact research from CIFAR’s fellows, chairs, scholars and advisors to the forefront.

As artificially intelligent robots become more advanced — how can they be used to help us live better lives?

Using smart, socially assistive robots have the potential to help health care workers, improve cognitive stimulation, and aid in rescue operations.

Leading robotics expert Goldie Nejat (University of Toronto), and political scientist Amos Zehavi (Tel Aviv University), both members of CIFAR’s Innovation, Equity & The Future of Prosperity program, share their findings related to social robots, and the implications on society and policy.

This event is offered in English. French subtitles will be available on the post-event recording.
