Should all robots have an ethical black box‪?‬ Oxford Sparks Big Questions

    • Natural Sciences

Nowadays, the idea of encountering robots in our daily lives isn't pure science fiction. Many of us interact with AI every day, and the use of robots in, for example, healthcare settings, is already on the horizon. But what if something goes wrong? The RoboTIPS team at the University of Oxford is developing an innovative feature - an 'ethical black box' that acts like a data recorder for use when adverse incidents or accidents occur. How would it work? Well, in this very special episode of the Big Questions Podcast, we're going to demonstrate - through the medium of theatre! That's right, we've made our very own radio play! Sit back, relax, and let us present the Oxford RoboTIPS players in "The Case of the Fall".
