Going beyond liability of robots, this research aims to propose and explore best ways to create a society where “emerging technologies” are smartly and fully integrated in our societies. It is necessary to clarify their integration to try to give an objective background to reflect on their liability.

Today we are experiencing an unprecedented revolution in the labor market. With the emergence of robotization and artificial intelligence, humans are pushing the boundaries of productivity and research.[1]

All sectors are affected by this phenomenon. In previous labor market revolutions, jobs that could be described as “more intellectual” were spared, but today robots are able to think and analyze more quickly than humans. This phenomenon can be observed, for example, in the banking sector. Trading rooms, once full of agitation and human beings speculating on stocks, are now full of computers that make all day predictions of changes in values.

Western societies and even all the countries of the world are undergoing a profound transformation and today we have already adopted a very serious and advanced robotization of society. For example, today in South Korea, one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world, people are already thinking about putting an end to physical money. Robots and artificial intelligence are beginning to control all sectors of the economy.[2]

If robots are taking up more and more space in our lives, this is also the case in the field of project management.

Today, robots and artificial intelligence are becoming cornerstones in the success of many projects. They become essential. They become full stakeholders. For example, in IT-projects, artificial intelligence helps project managers to sort data and make it usable. Without this added value, some projects would not be possible.
