Audio interview from The Take Away

(Dated January 30th, 2014)

Last night, scientists, roboticists and ethicists gathered at The New School in New York City to discuss the very nature of robotic progression. As artificial intelligence (AI) makes a larger space within our lives, how will human behavior evolve with the inclusion of intelligent robotics? Robot fanatics aren’t the only ones with their eyes on the future of AI. Earlier this week, Google acquired the artificial intelligence start-up DeepMind for at least $500 million. It’s Google’s eighth acquisition of a robotics company in recent months, though what they plan on doing with the the new technology remains to be seen. Joining The Takeaway to talk about the future of human interaction with robots are two panelists from last night’s Robot Dialogues. Heather Knight is a social roboticist and researcher at Carnegie Mellon. Wendell Wallach is a lecturer at the Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics at Yale University. Together they explain what humans can expect from robots over the next decade.
