Biography: 

Prof. Moon is an experimental roboticist specializing in ethics and responsible design of interactive robots and autonomous intelligent systems. She studies how our interaction with machines influence people's behaviours and decisions, and investigates different ways to integrate our societal values in the design and deployment of autonomous systems.

She has hands-on experiences from academia, industry, and policy. Prior to joining McGill, she served as a Senior Advisor for the UN Secretary-General’s High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation, and ran a start-up AI ethics consultancy, Generation R Consulting.
