Activity: Talks or PresentationsOther Invited Talks or Presentations


We can distinguish two different kinds of trust: trust in a process and trust in value alignment. Only process-trust can be achieved through certification of robots. Values-trust requires an individual, personal alignment of values between the user and the robot that is the basis for the robot to treat the user as a Kantian “end”. Is it doubtful whether values-trust can be achieved within the framework of existing economical structures in the technology sector.
