Robots, Automation and Robotics Speakers

In 2020 the word ‘robot’ is exactly one hundred years old. Czech playwright Karel Čapek used the term in his play RUR, Rossumovi Univerzální Roboti – the idea is derived from the word for slave labour. By 1942 science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov had developed the Three Laws of Robotics. And by 2020 robots had been part of manufacturing and industry for decades. So by 2020 writers and speakers such as Stephanie Hare, Patrick Lin, and Jacob Turner were writing on how and in what way automation, artificial intelligence and robotics will need to regulated given the implications for law-making, on individual liberty, and on warfare.
