Should Robots Be Our Friends? Ethical and social scientific implications of the growing emotional engagement of humans with AI agents and robots.

Artificial intelligence is increasingly prevalent in our work, social, and civic lives. From the ubiquitous voice-enabled personal assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri to autonomous vehicles and robotic elder care, AI permeates contemporary life; it is critical that researchers interrogate what it means to be human in a world of AI. To that end, Boston University presents an international symposium, inviting scholars, policy-makers, and analysts to collaboratively investigate artificial intelligence in relationship to society, specifically exploring issues such as labor, ethics, emotions, and identity.
