What if Robots are persons?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

What does it mean to be a person? Should we grant personhood to Robots? What might happen if we do?

As we catapult ourselves into 2021 and beyond, we're standing amidst developments in AI and Robotics that are taking place at break-neck speed. As ethical, moral, and philosophical work lags behind - Joshua K. Smith is asking tough questions about how we should live with, and treat Robots.

In this one, we talk about:

  • What it means to be a person
  • Why it might be a good idea to grant legal personhood to a Robot
  • Understanding how humans might treat Robots, with or without legal protections
  • An ideal future
