The recent technological leap in AI capacities accelerates the development of highly skilled social robots.  But it also increases longstanding concerns about the socio-cultural implications of this emerging technology. 

The aim of the sixth international Robophilosophy Conference RP2024 is to address the socio-cultural, ethical, existential, and theoretical questions raised by the use of generative multimodal AIs in social robotics.  For this purpose, RP2024 will bring together international researchers from the Humanities and social sciences (specializing in HRI), social robotics, and computer science.   

The special ambition of RP2024 is to produce actionable knowledge based on professional engagement of the foundational issues, to move beyond well-intentioned proclamations and address the expectable socio-cultural transformations of societies by social robotics in a responsible fashion. 

The Robophilosophy Conference Series so far has featured the world’s largest events for Humanities research in and on social robotics. Given the urgency of research-based regulations, experts on society and experts on technology need to collaborate more closely. RP2024 challenges Humanities researchers to showcase how conceptual and phenomenological research can contribute to this collaborative effort; RP2024 challenges engineers to take their new responsibilities seriously and to contribute technical facts and prospects to this interdisciplinary event.
