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.
