Affiliation
School of Computing, Tokyo Institute of Technology
Job Title
Professor
Research and Development Period
October 2017 to September 2020

Project Outline

We aim at realizing a society in which molecular robot technology and human beings are familiar with one another by spirally promoting the study (Konagaya G) of molecular robot's Ethical, Legal and Social Issues (ELSI) and the real-time technical assessment study (Shineha G) to gather a wide range of knowledge/opinions about both technology and society utilizing the Internet.

In our project, co-creating with the Shineha G, we proceed with the molecular robot ELSI study by repeating the process of: (1) aggregation of a wide range of opinions from society utilizing real-time technical assessment technology; (2) formulation of a draft molecular robot guideline reflecting such opinions and (3) discussion at study meetings/symposia concerning the formulated draft. Also, we support in the molecular robot international student contest from the viewpoint of ELSI in order to further young molecular robot researchers' and students' understanding of molecular robot ELSI.
