There are many emergent topics surrounding working animals. They are integral to millions of humans’ lives, working in human assistance, military operations, farming, or transportation. This workshop will examine the role of ACI when designing technology for working animals. It will engage with the important reflection of some of these deeper topical issues (e.g. the ethics of having animals ‘work for’ humans) and how they apply to our field, as well as examine topics that are specific to ACI (e.g. if/when/how a new technology should be integrated into an existing training framework). The workshop will particularly focus on the ethical considerations from the field of ACI when designing technology-based interactions and challenges if technology is applicable and whether it should even be considered. Following this, in situations where the ACI community engages with the development of technology for working animals, we will discuss related methods and challenges.
