Disability Rights and Robotics; Co-producing futures – Tours of the Assisted Living Studio, Bristol Robotics Lab

This is a UWE Bristol Social Science in the City event celebrating Disability History Month

In this time of rapid social change to our social and work lives, relationships and leisure, there are new technologies that might support disability rights like ‘driverless cars’, smart phones, social media and new robotic technologies. Members of the team of 25 co-researchers from the University of the West of England, Fairfield Farm College and Wiltshire Centre of Independent Living used a knowledge café methodology to ask

How can robotic technologies support disability rights?

Sign up for an online 15 minute tour of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory Assisted Living Studio with Professor Praminda Caleb-Solly running between 2-4pm email here for your place on the tour (limited numbers) – sophie.savage@uwe.ac.uk

The robotic tour will take place on Microsoft teams which includes the option of live captioning, and your tour guide will be using limited BSL. The tour will be scripted and this script will be available to those registered. A recording of the robotic tour is also available for those who wish to engage in their own time.

To join the mini knowledge café 6pm -8pm please sign up for a ticket and we will email you the link closer to the date. Any problems please – sophie.savage@uwe.ac.uk

Café Programme:

Experience – From your experience, how do you think robotic technology might enable your rights in everyday life?

Deepening the Inquiry – Sharing our project and its key messages– ‘Disability Rights and Robotics: co-producing futures’

Knowledge for Action – Generating your priority questions for further co-production research

See our report and cartoon for more details on our project (these links will only work for those internal to UWE).
