Influence human life for the better
Autonomous and intelligent devices are, in many ways, the center of people's lives. It's not enough to ask, 'Does a system do what you designed it to do?' You also have to consider if what you designed it to do is the right thing to do.
–James Bellingham, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Exploration Robotics
