The European Parliament has urged the European Commission to put in place rules to ensure robots are and will remain in the service of humans. Are robots a threat to our lives and livelihoods? Could they be technology’s answer to many of humanity’s greatest challenges? Should robots have rights and who owns the data they collect?
The Vodafone Institute invites you to join a stellar line up of international thinkers to explore some big questions and challenge our assumptions about the impact of automation in the Gigabit Age.
