Episode Description:

In this episode, we examine two different pathways of robotic development. In the first, robots augment human capabilities, by doing things that humans can't but always under the supervision and control of humans. In the second, robots become autonomous and perform their tasks with no further human intervention or control. Depending on which pathway prevails, we could be looking at two dramatically different futures, one in which robots become our servants, and the other in which they become our masters. Discussing these issues is our guest, John Markoff, Pulitzer Prize-winning science reporter for the New York Times, and author of the new book, “Machines of Loving Grace: The quest for common ground between humans and robots.” Martin Wasserman hosts.
