17. Charles Radclyffe

This month I speak to Charles Radclyffe in Bristol's Engine Shed about dubious business models exploiting technology, differing narratives of tech ethics, using the court for automated car law preemptively and much more.

16. Josh Artus and Ben Byford

This episode I share the interviewer responsibilities with Conscious Cities' podcaster Josh Artus. I get to ask Josh some questions and Josh has some for me (Ben Byford). We chatted about: AI data misrepresentation, bias and misuse; mindful technology implementation; using AI for things other than tricking people into looking at adverts; EEG misrepresentation; Bristol is Open and technology used in the public section in our cities; and much more.

15. Susan and Michael Anderson

Discussing almost coining Machine Ethics, Big Data and social sciences not having the answer to AI ethics, prima facie duties and robots, everything is going to have to have some ethic, and AI as the continuation of humanity into space.

14. Michael Ludden

This month I'm talking to Michael Ludden about his work at IBM, what the hell Watson is, AI in culture and creating a positive cultural AI view, as well as using AI in AR and VR projects.

13. Alan Winfield

I talk to Alan about how humans should innovate ethically, different standards and the role of standards for designing and building robots, how autonomous systems should be transparent, and how studying robotics enables us to peer into our own behaviours and intelligence.
