I recorded a new episode of the Human-Robot Interaction Podcast:
023: Zombies – Can robots be conscious?
Are robots zombies? This might seem like a strange question at first, but it leads to one of the most important questions in science today: what is consciousness and can robot’s become conscious? These questions fascinate many people. And when Blake Lemoine suggested that Google’s latest AI Lambda had become sentient, it triggered a worldwide media frenzy. In this HRI podcast episode, I talk with Professor Jack Copeland about machine consciousness.
I am happy to announce a new episode of the Human-Robot Interaction podcast that focuses the question why almost all social robots failed in the market. Find out more at the podcast episode.
