Will AI develop in a way that increases the divide between haves and have-nots or results in a more just and equitable society?
NRT-AI addresses the challenge of integrating responsible and ethical AI at all stages of development, design, and deployment of service robots. The Convergent, Responsible, and Ethical AI Training Experience for Roboticists (CREATE Roboticists) program will integrate ethical robotics education, research, and career development. The program will train 32 funded trainees and 150 additional graduate students from the Departments of Aerospace, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, and Schools of Architecture, Information, and Public Affair. The NSF Research Traineeship Program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training.
