Social robotics is an emerging field in Australia. As new generations of robots are developed that participate in our lives and exist in public spaces, we need to consider the impact of these technologies and how we can harness their benefits. Social robots must collaborate with people and prove themselves as capable partners. They must make good teammates, learn from us or teach us, as well as communicate with and understand us. The goal of this workshop is to explore where social robotics is heading and how we can best navigate the multi-disciplinary challenges such robots will present.
