The Körber Foundation asked us to present our robot NAVEL on their thematic series “Logged in”. Together with Arne Manzeschke, professor of anthropology and ethics, and the moderator Katharina Heckendorf, we discussed the social potentials and risks that social robots have. We need to be especially mindful of vulnerable user groups. We agreed that social robots with NAVEL’s capabilities are a powerful tool that can improve and facilitate lives. However, when such new technologies are misused, there are also new dangers that must be considered.
The Körber Foundation has put the video recording online. The event is in German
