Lecture by Professor Peter Asaro

17 may 2023 year

On May 17, Professor Peter Asaro, a philosopher of science, technology and media, will give a guest lecture for Karazin residents.

His work examines artificial intelligence and robotics as a form of digital media, the ethical dimensions of algorithms and data, and the ways in which technology mediates social relations and shapes our experience of the world.

The lecture "Campaign to Stop Killer Robots" is a part of the lecture series of V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University: "Lecture to Victory: World Speakers in Support of V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University" and will be the thirteenth within this initiative.

Professor Asaro’s current research focuses on the social, cultural, political, legal and ethical dimensions of automation and autonomous technologies, from a perspective that combines media theory with science and technology studies.

His research also examines agency and autonomy, liability and punishment, and privacy and surveillance as it applies to consumer robots, industrial automation, smart buildings, UAVs and drones, and autonomous vehicles.

Now he is currently researching a book that interrogates the intersections between advanced robotics, and social and ethical issues.

Start of the event: at 15:00.
