Rarely a day goes by without a story in the media about robots and the various threats and opportunities they pose to various aspects of our day-to-day life. The Public Service Research Group has recently been awarded a research grant by the Australia and New Zealand School of Government to investigate the use of robots in care services and the implications for government in stewarding these technologies. Led by myself and Gemma Carey, this project also involves Catherine Smith (Melbourne Graduate School, University of Melbourne) and Nicole Carey (Self Organizing Systems Research Group, Harvard University).
The good folk over at The Mandarin have published a piece from us today on this project (you can find it here). If you are interested in finding out more about this project or potentially being a case study then please get in touch with us.
