Robophilosophy is a new area of philosophical research defined as "philosophy of, for, and by social robotics"--it involves not only ethics, but also theoretical disciplines in philosophy. RISR is an interdisciplinary unit which undertakes empirical research on human-robot interaction, but also contributes to conceptual and methodological research in social robotics and HRI. We use the approach of "Integrative Social Robotics" (ISR), which assigns to Humanities expertise an integral role in the RD&D process. ISR is a value-driven method that is designed to generate culturally sustainable applications of social robotics.
