Radiolab 10.1: Talking to Machines

  1. Consciousness and Machines

    A discussion on the evolution of consciousness as it relates to machines. Symbolic logic, nanotechnology and the possibility of a synthetic super-intelligence. Artificial Intelligence as a part of ourselves that could shape our evolution. Virtual computers as the source of the AI. Partnership or conflict between human and machine? How much control do we have in the evolution of machine intelligence? Challenges to the premises of the AI argument. Quantum computers, machine-time and the possibilities of the World Wide Web.

  2. Zeynep Tufekci: Machine intelligence makes human morals more important | TED Talk | TED.com

    Machine intelligence is here, and we're already using it to make subjective decisions. But the complex way AI grows and improves makes it hard to understand and even harder to control. In this cautionary talk, techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci explains how intelligent machines can fail in ways that don't fit human error patterns — and in ways we won't expect or be prepared for. "We cannot outsource our responsibilities to machines," she says. "We must hold on ever tighter to human values and human ethics."

  3. Marvin Minsky on Computers & Consciousness | To the best of our KNOWLEDGE

    Marvin Minsky is one of the world's leading experts in artificial intelligence. He teaches at MIT. His latest book is "The Emotion Machine." Minsky tells Steve Paulson he believes machine intelligence is very like human intelligence and that one day people may choose to back themselves up into computers.

    The future of artificial intelligence with Nick Bostrom

    by The Next Debate

    published on 2015/04/29 23:58:25 +0000

    It sounds like science fiction: a computer many times smarter than any human being wiping out civilization. But the existential risks associated with thinking machines is an increasingly hot top topic in Silicon Valley and high-tech hubs everywhere. Renowned artificial intelligence expert Nick Bostrom thinks the dangers are real, and the sooner we take them seriously the more likely we can prevent a super intelligent machine from becoming humankind’s last invention.

  5. Are We Alone: Robots Call the Shots

    Dr. Robot, I presume? Your appendix may be removed by motor-driven, scalpel-wielding mechanical hands one day. Robots are debuting in the medical field… as well as on battlefields. And they’re increasingly making important decisions – on their own. But can we teach robots right from wrong? Find out why the onslaught of silicon intelligence has prompted a new field of robo-ethics.

    Plus, robo-geologists: NASA’s vision for autonomous robots in space.

    Guests:

    • P.W. Singer – Director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institution, and the author of Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century
    • Wendell Wallach – Chair of a technology and ethics working group for Yale University’s Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, and the co-author of Moral Machines: Teaching Robots Right from Wrong
    • Pablo Garcia – – Principal engineer working on medical robotics at SRI International, Menlo Park, California

  8. CBC Ideas - Mind and Machine, Part 1

    Computers can defeat grandmasters at chess and trump the best trivia-hounds at Jeopardy!. Today they can help us navigate the drive home; soon they'll be doing the driving for us. Sixty years ago, Artificial Intelligence - "AI" - was in its infancy. Now it promises to transform our world beyond recognition. In this two part series, science journalist Dan Falk explores the new promise and peril of intelligent machines. Part 2 airs Wednesday, September 18.

    Our digital devices are getting more sophisticated every day. Sometimes they talk to us, like the GPS systems in our cars. Sometimes we talk to them, like when use an i-Phone and ask "Siri" - the phone's digital, personal assistant - to recommend a nearby restaurant. We have other computers that play chess - and play it so well that they can defeat the best human grand-masters.

    And then there's IBM's Watson, the computer that was able to beat the best human trivia-hounds on the game show, Jeopardy!

    It's tempting to use the word "intelligent" to describe these machines, but are they actually thinking?
