Some thoughts on security and robots

Published on

presented during the RSA Conference 14 in San Francisco. The main idea was to highlight how devices like robots raise new questions about physical security (for hardware and people) and about privacy.

  • Nicolas Rigaud - Aldebaran Robotics created in 2005
    Goal of founder & CEO: companion robots for the well being of humanity
    Strategy: start with a small robot and then create bigger ones
  • Romeo second product
    Google buying robotics companies lately
    (not so far) because robots are already there
    In personal life
    Work
    Teach
    Play
    Take care of elders, etc.
  • Who wants to talk to a screen? Do you use SIRI a lot? Importance of the shape
    Verbal interaction is natural
    Better techno + more confortable to talk to human shaped devices
    Smart: there a computer inside
    It can connect to the internet, use cloud computing or cloud data storage
    It will learn from the interaction, so as to fit even more to users expectations
    Last point seems like a detail, but
  • Let’s see how these laws don’t work:
    #1
    Would mean robots can understand the goal behind what they do
    Milk example
    First death recorded: 79 in a ford factory
    #2 example with follow the ball
    #3 same example as #2
  • Our first responsability, as manufacturers, is to deliver a safe product
    Hardware must be safe, for itself (anti collision) and for other (anti pinch)
    Software must be safe and secure regarding the hardware
    Second point is people’s safety: we cannot let them take any risk. It’s impossible to prevent everything from happening, but we have to do our best for that
    Monitoring people taking their medication, call for help
    Tele-presence, go and check for you. Video feedbacks
  • Lots of data are used to monitor the robot security, we cannot let people do what they want with this kind of data
    Personal data is a part of data collected by the robot.

    5. 5. contextual definition humanoid robot: human-shaped connected & autonomous device that can have direct physical interactions with beings and objects #RSAC
    6. 6. What about security? 3 laws of robotics (Asimov, 1942) #1 a robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm #2 a robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except when such orders would conflict with #1 #3 a robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with #1 and #2 #RSAC
    7. 7. Physical security • Physical security of robots – Hardware – Software • Physical security of people using robots • Enhancing people’s physical security with robots #RSAC
    8. 8. Privacy • Exponential growth of data with robots: – Autonomous navigation – Face recognition – Open conversation • Use value > Privacy #RSAC
    9. 9. Privacy • Users can’t have full control on data • Data vs Personal Data • Big Data vs Privacy #RSAC
