The Automatic Future and Who is Driving?

It seems nearly every day new articles appear about robots and software replacing human workers.

From taxis to aeroplanes, insurance companies to operating theatres, from old folks’ homes to the field of battle, artificial intelligence is stepping in to automate our work. Are humans about to be made redundant? Will we get a nice redundancy package? What are governments and companies doing to protect human rights? When is it okay for a machine to kill? Is AI going bring us closer to utopia or throw us into a nightmare of automated killing machines?

In this talk, an ethicist, an AI researcher and a science fiction author discuss where AI is driving us and who, if anyone, is behind the wheel.
