From robots making food deliveries to drones aiding in search and rescue missions to self-driving cars, automation and technology are changing the way we live.

According to experts in the field, “automation shifts responsibility from humans and lets intelligent machines take control” (Mumm, H., 2019). This shift in automation has begun to alter the way we live, but its impacts on society are yet to be seen.

With an eye to the future, in May 2019 Syracuse University started the Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI) with the goal of keeping technology from outpacing policy in the quickly growing field of autonomous systems and technology.

Please join us for the next episode of ADA Live! when our guest Associate Professor Dr. Krista Kennedy and host Burton Blatt Institute colleague Diane Wiener, discuss ASPI’s exciting work, the importance of “human/machine collaboration,” and the opportunities and challenges autonomous systems hold for persons with disabilities.
