About Us

We are a group of Brown University faculty, students, and affiliates dedicated to robotics as a means to tackle the problems the world faces today.  Beyond pursuing the goal of technological advancement, we want to ensure that these advancements are applicable and beneficial economically and socially.  We are working across many disciplines to document the societal needs and applications of human-robot interaction research as well as the ethical, legal, and economic questions that will arise with its development.  Our research ultimately aims to help create and understand robots that coexist harmoniously with humans.
