We Robot Bibliography
Purpose and Scope
This bibliography of scholarly writing relevant to the law and policy of Robots and Robotics is being created as part of the inaugural “We Robot” Conference to be held at the University of Miami School of Law on April 21 & 22, 2012.
This bibliography lists scholarly works that examine the role of robotics in society through the lenses of Ethics, Law, and Policy. It is not an attempt to list works devoted primarily to robotic technology.
