Inhoud vak

Robots and Artificial Intelligence used to belong to science fiction
movies and stories. Also, they were discussed in theoretical academic
and popular articles. In recent years both Robots and Artificial
Intelligence gradually but strongly are moving away from theory and
entering our daily lives. This course focuses on those practical
developments, and what role law and ethics play. We do not limit
ourselves to present technology, but include prophecies on how society
may change in the future and what we can and should do about it.
