for robotics to be regulated and certified. Hallie Siegel moderates. (Source: Olivier Lamarre; used with permission.)

often used as instruments for assessing
liability and can be bypassed if busi-
nesses judge the benefits of noncompli-
ance to outweigh the potential costs.
The discussion revolved around the
inability of existing regulatory pro-
cesses to identify and mitigate potential
harms, the extent to which regulation
should preempt emerging technologies
and their possible (mis)uses, and the
need for technologists to be informed
about, and involved in, the development
of appropriate standards and policies.
The panel broadly agreed that regula-
tion, in some form, is ultimately neces-
sary to ensure that safety and fairness
are centered in the design and deploy-
ment of AI and robotic systems.

Lightning Talks
The "lightning talks" featured five con-
tributed papers:
● Adam Hall and Emmett Wise (Uni-
versity of Toronto), "Different Degrees
of Regulation for Robotics"
● Karime Pereida and Melissa Greeff
(University of Toronto), "Bias In, Bias
Out-Diversity In, Diversity Out"
● Matthew Robertson (École Polytech-
nique Fédérale de Lausanne), "Play,
Explore, Challenge: A Design Strat-
egy for Innovation"
● Dr. Signe Redfield (U.S. Naval Re-
search Laboratory, Washington,
D.C.), "Robotics: An Academic Dis-
cipline" (published as a "Comment"
in Nature Machine Intelligence)

SEPTEMBER 2019

Stewart Jamieson (Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, Cambridge),
"The Pervasiveness of Deep Learn-
ing in Robotics Research Does Not
Impede Scientific Insights Into Ro-
botics Problems."

Future Directions
Based on overwhelmingly positive
feedback from community members
and participants alike, we believe that
structured debate should become a
mainstay of academic robotics confer-
ences. To broaden its impact within the
robotics community, we hope to see
this format extend to many parts of the
conference week, including keynote
and plenary sessions.
