Smart Robotic Interfaces: Designing the Future of Human
Dzmitry Tsetserukou, assistant professor

The round table on Smart Robotic Interfaces is a vibrant forum where scientists, psychophysicists, engineers, and designers participate. Their joint aim is to share advances, spark new collaborations, and envision a future in neuroscience, robotics, and artificial intelligence. It is a rapidly developing field integrating robots (e.g. assistive arm, prosthetics, and wearable robot), sensors that read valuable information, and the human.

Such technologies augment human compatibilities and immerse people into the world of machines. The applications of Smart Robotic Interfaces include exoskeletons for restoration of motor and sensory functions, control of robots, human computer interaction, VR and AR reality, telepresence, haptics, and more.

We solicit submissions describing advances in

  • BMI (Brain machine interface), EMG sensors, eye tracking, motion capture
  • Exoskeletons and Robotic prosthetics
  • Internet of things and affective computing
  • Affective Haptics and Tactile displays
  • VR and AR systems
  • Computational neuroscience
  • Swarm and cognitive robotics
  • Wearable technologies
  • Advanced electronics and sensors
  • Telepresence, Teleoperation and Telexistence
  • Control of space and underwater robots
  • Bio-inspired Robotics
“Robot: WHAT is it/WHO is it? The moral portrait of anthropomorphic machines”
Maxim Kiselev, Director of Leadership Programs

 Experts are ceaselessly debating the thin line which separates «human» from «mechanical» robots.

Now more than ever, with the rise of ultramodern very “smart” anthropomorphic robots, the question arises: where does technical end and human begin?  Can a robot have free will, and do we want IT to have one? Moral Machines: Contradiction in terms or abdication of human responsibility? Can a machine be moral or emotional? And where does all that progress – real or imagined – lead humanity to? Should a mankind stop at some point in improving robots’ abilities, and if so, how to do it?
