Conversations in Science: Robot Ethics

When I hijacked Jessie's POV, I spoke about Sophia, the robot that was granted citizenship of Saudi Arabia. There was a lot of discussion about various ethical issues surrounding robots. I knew right away it was time to phone a friend.

On this month's episode of Conversations in Science, Jessie and I had a blast talking with Sean Welsh, who is at the forefront of this new field of science that crosses into philosophy. The field is known as Robot Ethics.

I hijacked Jessie’s POV… Mwahaha…

There is one topic that I've been wanting to cover on Conversations in Science, but my producer Jessie Sanders wouldn't let me do it. The topic was steeped in politics, and Conversations in Science is meant to be politics-free. However, she said that if I could find a show where I could talk about politics, then I could do it. Well...

Jessie has gone on holiday, and she asked me to upload an episode for her. Little does she know... I have found the show where I can cover the one topic that I've been wanting to cover.

So, I've hijacked Jessie's POV to discuss the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and why I think President Trump is wanting to pull out.
