Dr Wamberto Vasconcelos, SAsSy, University of Aberdeen

Robots, mobile phones and computers surround us in our everyday lives. These technologies are continuously advancing, but will there become a time when they are able to make their own decisions and plans without human input?
How we communicate with and understand these technologies is becoming increasingly important. Leading researchers from University of Aberdeen’s SAsSy group (www.scrutablesystems.org) share novel research to explain why enabling these technologies to explain their behaviour is vital for the future.
