Autonomous systems ask new questions of the public, engineers and regulators: what we expect of such systems and the conditions under which we can and should trust them. Developing a shared answer to these questions is essential if the UK is to become a leader in the development and deployment of autonomous systems and realise the economic and social benefits.

The National Engineering Policy Centre is undertaking a policy project on ‘Safety and ethics of autonomous systems’, which will look at the regulatory environment needed to ensure that the benefits are realised. This series of interactive panel discussions will bring together a range of perspectives to look at issues such as safety, responsibility and trust, and answer some key questions:

  • What are the risks and benefits associated with autonomous systems?
  • What is the step-change required to mitigate against these risks and maximise future benefits?
  • What mechanisms can help manage this transition?

This event is free to attend but registration is required.
