GRASP Lab


Diversity Statement

We believe that our research in GRASP is better with a diverse team in a collaborative environment. We embrace and encourage our lab members’ differences in age, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our lab members who they are. In recognition of the importance of collaboration, we do not abide intolerance, disrespectful or hurtful behavior.

GRASP LAWS Initiative

Research into lethal autonomous weapons systems (LAWS), and autonomous weapons systems more generally (AWS), is underway across the globe as a subset of broader military investments into uses of robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The University of Pennsylvania GRASP Lab in collaboration with Perry World House has undertaken an initiative to help robotics researchers develop a disciplinary response to the challenges surrounding legal and ethical governance in the design and use of such systems.

Academics


The GRASP Laboratory incorporates a selective and rigorous robotics program for graduate and doctoral students that boasts a research-focused environment within a distinguished Ivy League university. GRASP students work and learn within an intellectual setting founded on the strength of its academic programs led by an expert faculty.
