SPECIAL GUEST: Julie Carpenter. The robots are coming… and soon we will be too. Bad pun? Perhaps… but once again we’re joined by robot researcher Julie Carpenter, this time to dip into robots in a more… intimate context. What possibilities lie within our AI companions? Science fiction offers some visions of what this future could entail, philosophy and ethics suggest some potential issues. Once again we dive into the wonderful world of SEXBOTS!! Recorded 10/2/2016.
