Robots, Robots, Robots! with Kate Darling

Factually! with Adam Conover

When we picture robots, we normally think of an artificial being created in our own image. But what if this were deeply misleading? Author ofThe New Breed, Kate Darling, joins Adam to separate fact from science fiction and discuss the potentials and perils of real life robots. They get into the ethical issues involved with autonomous weapons systems and vehicles, why robots don’t need to look like people, and why robots might be better thought of as animal companions, rather than human replacements.

Why data is powering machines that can augment human intelligence, not replace it with Kate Darling

Data Brilliant

Joe DosSantos is joined by Kate Darling in the latest episode of Data Brilliant. Kate Darling is an expert in robot ethics and research specialist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab. She specialises in researching human and robot interactions so we can anticipate the difficult questions that we could face in the future, from technology law and policy to AI ethics.   Kate shares with Joe how the vast power of data is making machines smarter, but how machine intelligence differs to human intelligence. They discuss what a robot really is, outside of the stereotypical silver object we all think of. She shares examples of how human connection with robots can be compared with our relationships with animals and how our Terminator understanding of robots is far from the reality. Hosted on Acast.
