Welcome To The RAISE Lab!

The Responsible Autonomy and Intelligent Systems Ethics (RAISE) lab is an interdisciplinary group that investigates how interactive intelligent machines influence human behavior and explore ways to maximize their benefits while minimizing risks to society.

We explore questions such as “How do our interaction with machines influence our behaviors and decisions?” and “How can we better integrate our values in the design of intelligent machines that influence us in a variety of ways?” 



The Responsible Autonomous & Intelligent System Ethics (RAISE) lab at McGill University, directed by Dr. AJung Moon, studies how autonomous intelligent systems interact with and influence human decisions and behaviour. We explore ways to maximize the value of robots and other intelligent machines while minimizing their risks to society. Through research in AI ethics and collaborative robotics, we aim to provide technology developers with practical tools for responsible innovation. Bridging knowledge between engineering and ethics, our studies also empower policymakers and business leaders to make informed decisions in the design and deployment of intelligent systems.  


We are an interdisciplinary team with people from various countries of the world. This group of people have extensive knowledge in AI Ethics, Social Robotics, Robot Ethics, Machine Learning, to name a few. We have a lab-space that we use on a regular basis to study and conduct research. Lab socials are something that we are really fond of and we try to get together outside the lab at least once a month just to have some fun time with everyone.

Prospective Students

We’re delighted to see that you’re considering sharing the joys of research with us! We are always looking for undergraduate and graduate students to work with us in the areas of human-robot interaction and ethics of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
