Last month The Guardian newspaper’s podcast series ‘We need to talk about….’ was about Artificial Intelligence. I submitted a question, and this was recorded for the podcast and addressed by the panel. The question? About the role of physical characteristics of AI machines, how we humans relate to their physicality, as robots become more prevalent in the home and in the workplace.
The podcast can be heard and downloaded from the Guardian site here. The panel consisted of Timandra Harkness broadcaster and author of ‘Big Data: does size matter?’, Dr Mariarosaria Taddeo, a research fellow and the deputy director of the Digital Ethics Lab of the Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford and Fellow of the Turing Institute. And finally Ian Sample, the Guardian’s science editor.
