The use of robots is moving rapidly beyond controlled environments such as factories to complex environments in the midst of human activity, demanding a nimble cross-disciplinary approach. Princeton engineers are advancing the productive, safe, and ethical use of robotics in society by building and connecting expertise in sensing, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, public policy, and other fields.
The Center for Information Technology Policy uses Princeton’s unique strengths to promote an informed public discussion of digital technologies. Combining faculty expertise in technology and engineering, public policy, and the social sciences with a strong University tradition of service, the Center’s research, teaching, and public programs address digital technologies as they interact with policy, markets, and society. The center is a joint initiative of the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
