Autonomous Systems Policy Symposium at Syracuse University – TODAY

Jamie Winders, Chair of Geography, leads the Autonomous Systems Policy Initiative for Syracuse University.

Autonomous Systems Policy Symposium

Autonomous Systems and Their Policy, Law, and Governance Implications

Autonomous Systems Policy Initiative, a new Syracuse University-wide effort, is convening faculty and students across disciplines, along with industry experts from the public, private, and non-profit sectors to explore the technology, policy, and wider social implications of autonomous systems.

From self-driving cars to drone delivery systems, from robotic underwater vessels to smart-home technologies, autonomous systems are transforming our world—posing complex social, ethical, and legal questions that demand interdisciplinary, multi-faceted research.
