We are at the brink of a technological revolution—the “robot revolution”—that may have unprecedented disruptive effects on our socio-economic and socio-cultural practices. According to current predictions by 2035, a third of all jobs in Denmark will be automatized.  How will this affect us as individuals, communities, and societies?  There are obvious economic questions--if robots replace humans in the workspace, how will it affect the distribution of wealth and which socio-political repercussions can we expect? This lecture will explore some of the not-so-obvious socio-cultural and ethical questions raised especially by so-called “social” robots, i.e., robots that are designed to invite humans into social relationships as “companions,” “assistants,” or “tutors”.  Can and should we have genuine social interactions with social robots? Should we, as recently suggested by the European Parliament, consider robots as “electronic persons”, should they pay tax, have rights, and carry responsibilities?  I will suggest that we need a new conceptual framework to understand our relations with artificial agents and to assign responsibilities in the new types of interaction contexts we will be engaged in. This framework is to be fleshed out by interdisciplinary research on human-robot interactions where many scientific methods are integrated, including especially also the methods of the Humanities.  Given market pressures towards automation it is a—potentially tragic—irony that in many countries including Denmark governmental resources are transferred from the Humanities to engineering at a time when engineers around the globe have been to call for the expertise produced by Humanities research.
