We are looking forward to celebrating and sharing some of the work and findings from Professor Marina Jirotka's five-year EPSRC Fellowship, RoboTIPS - Responsible Robots for the Digital Economy. The event will feature: 

We will also hear from the teams who have been working on the policy and governance frameworks, and the developer toolkit, as well as the specially-created jazz-and-stories from the project's musical team.
