Call for Participation: Working Group for IEEE P7017™: Recommended Practice for Design-Centered Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and Governance
The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the Working Group for IEEE P7017™: Recommended Practice for Design-Centered Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and Governance.
Why Get Involved?
This recommended practice describes the methodology and application of “compliance by design” in the area of human-robot interaction (HRI) with regard to socially assistive robots. Six topics are included:
- Metrics on behaviors for stakeholders in HRI
- Metrics of different design practices and their impacts to HRI governance
- Risk assessment of using compliance by design for socially assistive robots
- Use cases in compliance by design for socially assistive robots
- Recommended methods for compliance by design for socially assistive robots
- A conceptual framework of compliance by design for HRI governance, to enable robot developers to efficiently apply ethical behaviors into the design process for socially assistive robots and to help stakeholders reduce legal conflicts between existing laws and emerging technologies regarding the use of socially assistive robots in human spaces.
The purpose of this recommended practice is to provide stakeholders engaged in the use and design of socially assistive robots with means of design-centered approaches to realize safe and trustworthy human-robot interactions that comply with legal rules in (semi) public environments. The core of this project is to explore the potential of AI (Artificial Intelligence) ethics standards in the governance of human-robot interactions through compliance by design for socially assistive robots.
