How Can Robots Gain Our Trust?

Trust has always been the foundation of human cooperation, interaction, and organization. Soon robots will have a place beside us, enabling and enhancing our capabilities and productivity. But first, how will they achieve trust? Developers in robotics dream of their creations being quickly adopted without friction. But how can they best engineer the trust necessary for these robots to take their place in our world? This panel explores how robots can win our trust and how trust can be engineered.


  1. How robots can earn our trust? Learning through observation, small augmentations, robots embracing shortcomings, showing vulnerability
  2. Robots will enhance -- not replace -- human capabilities and increase productivity
  3. Robots will play a critical role in the future of work and automation
