Who’s Afraid of Robots? Fear of Automation and the Ideal of Direct Control

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

We argue that lack of direct and conscious control is not, in principle, a reason to be afraid of machines in general and robots in particular: in order to articulate the ethical and political risks of increasing automation one must, therefore, tackle the difficult task of precisely delineating the theoretical and practical limits of sustainable delegation to robots.
