Faced with the certainty that robotics and artificial intelligence will lead to major social changes in the coming years, the media have started venturing when the intelligence of machines will surpass that of humans, what jobs will be replaced earlier, and how we should prepare for post-humanism. Some visions are absolutely utopian, while other are quite dreadful. In this monographic issue, we want to take a look at the current reality of research in these areas, and to debate rigorously on short-term promises and the risks they involve.
Some of the topics that we hope to address in this Mètode Science Studies Journal monograph are: Humanoid robots, machine learning/deep learning, brain-machine interfaces, humanitarian robotics, cyborgs and transhumanism, progress, challenges and risks of AI, and ethical issues of social robots and networks. We invite researchers developing their work in this field to send their analysis and texts.
