AJung Moon

AJung Moon is an experimental roboticist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at McGill University. She investigates how robots and AI systems influence the way people move, behave, and make decisions in order to inform how we can design and deploy such autonomous intelligent systems more responsibly.

At McGill University, she is the Director of the McGill Responsible Autonomy & Intelligent System Ethics (RAISE) lab. The RAISE lab is an interdisciplinary group that investigates the social and ethical implications of robots and AI systems and explores what it means for engineers to be designing and deploying such systems responsibly for a better, technological future. Moon is also an executive committee member of the IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems, member of the International Panel on the Regulation of Autonomous Weapons, and founder and former director of the Open Roboethics Institute.
