Research exploring how we can build better and fairer care systems in a future of robots, exoskeletons, and smart homes.
We believe that technology cannot replace care, but used well it could support radical social and structural change, taking us towards a future care system that is sustainable, fair and effective.
So with support from Google.org, this project is exploring the following questions:
- What are the future social impacts of care technologies that we need to be thinking about now?
- How do both the UK’s care infrastructure, and care technologies themselves, need to change to anticipate these impacts?
- In a technology-mediated society, how can we defend and develop care relationships?
