Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2014
Ethical considerations as well as users’ attitudes and perceptions of robots are increasingly being explored using a variety of methods. Considering the views of key stakeholders, and allowing such views to shape technology, is a prerequisite for the future of robotics. Yet, eliciting such views in a situation where participants have no frame of reference is no easy task. In our field of educational robotics, we are currently exploring ways in which to highlight potential ethical concerns and attitudes held by students and teachers. In this paper, we present the results of a questionnaire study conducted with 45 students in Sweden during a workshop called Robots in School: Fun or Scary?
