On May 12 in Scottsdale, the VOICE program will begin with a keynote speech by research specialist Dr. Kate Darling, a leading expert in robot ethics. Dr. Darling explores the emotional connection between people and life-like machines, seeking to influence technology design and policy direction. Named one of the “Women in Robotics You Need to Know About” by Robohub, she currently investigates social robotics and conducts experimental studies on human-robot interaction at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab.
