Here is a fascinating video interview with Prof. Noel Sharkey Sheffield University professor of robotics and AI.
Prof. Sharkey discusses the rise of robots and Artificial Intelligence and the implications thereof.
One particularly important area is the ethical issues of arming robots and using them in armed conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan.
(This interview raises questions that were previously discussed in the Dawn of the Kill-Bots series.)
