Ryan Calo’s recent call for the establishment of a Federal Robotics Commission has provoked a wide range of responses.

In an interview with Robotics Business Review analyst Emmet Cole, Calo, an assistant professor at the University of Washington School of Law, explains why he is calling for a Federal Robotics Commission, talks about the diversity of responses he has received, and responds specifically to those who hold that a Federal Robotics Commission would stifle innovation in the robotics space.
