Interchange – Colin Allen: Thinking About Thinking Machines

This week on Interchange, host Doug Storm talks with Colin Allen, a professor in the Department of History and the Philosophy of Science, about robotics, autonomous moral agents, and their portrayal in popular culture.  Allen talks about Google Cars, C3PO, and military and surveillance drones.  His work seeks to response to Rosalind Picard’s assertion that the more freedom a machine has the more it will need a moral sense.
