The Global Race to Robot Law: 4th Place, United States
Despite much academic discussion, meaningful government preparedness is low
Emmet Cole is a science writer and journalist with a special focus on robotics. A regular contributor to Robotics Business Review and Robotics Trends, he writes about the intersection of robotics and business.
On special assignment for Robotics Business Review as writer and at-large editor, Emmet writes the bi-weekly column, Robots and the Law, which examines the ethical and legal issues surrounding the use of robotics, human-robot interaction, and their impact on commercial robotics.
A native of Dublin, Ireland, Emmet studied philosophy in University College Dublin, and taught philosophy there for four years.
Moving to Austin, Texas in the early 2000s, Emmet started work as a journalist covering a broad tech beat, including technology developments in business, state and local governments, and the K-12 and higher education sectors.
A robotics assignment for Wired News in 2006 changed everything however. Since then, Emmet has focused on writing about the exciting world of emerging robotics and scientific discoveries, from Mars rovers and medical micro-robots to deep ocean mining systems and biologically-inspired UAVs.
Emmet's writing on robotics has also appeared in The Economist, Wired News, and Space Quarterly.
Robotics is causing profound changes in the ways that the world has always worked, with many more changes still to come. Taking stock of those myriad changes, sorting through how each affects the new revolution and our future, and reporting on them to you our members is the job of Robotics Business Review.
"Business" is our middle name; so here at Robotics Business Review, we believe that business, just as it has so aptly demonstrated since 1962, will ultimately be the force that drives all emerging robotics' technology forward. Robotics business and the business of robotics are our prime focus. Learn more.
