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.
01. ROBOTS THAT INTERACT WITH PEOPLE
Robot Signatures In Our Behaviors
Given the influence of autonomous intelligent systems on our decisions and actions, how can we design the systems to maximize benefits while protecting the users from potential harm? We investigate the influence robots have on people to enable technologists to make appropriate decisions in the designing of interactive robotic systems and policymakers to make evidence-based technology policy for the deployment of these systems in our society.
