The Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI) is a campus-wide institute dedicated to interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching on the design, governance, and wider implications of autonomous systems; and to critically engaging and shaping the policy
and ethical frameworks that guide the use and development of autonomous systems.
ASPI’s work focuses all autonomous systems, from driverless cars to unmanned aerial vehicles to maritime systems. This broad approach, plus ASPI’s interdisciplinary reach,
allows it to offer a synthesizing, critical perspective on how autonomous systems impact the world around us and what kinds of policies, norms, and practices can best shape their ethical and fair use.
ASPI brings academic insight, community needs, and industry developments into conversation and joint action. It involves faculty from all Syracuse University schools and colleges and creates research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students across campus.
ASPI also hosts speaker series, public events, and student and faculty workshops.
