Our latest podcast further examines big data and the ethics of autonomous machines and is now available to download, review and subscribe on iTunes, Tunein and Blubrry.
Dr Louise Dennis examines the choices self-driving cars will face as they take over our roads. Sometimes, the question is not what a good driver would do but rather, what a good (i.e. moral) person should do.
As autonomous machines spread into more and more facets of modern life, from our highways to our hospitals to our homes, Dr Dennis maintains that moral reasoning will increasingly need to be a critical part of their design.
Dr Louise Dennis is a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Autonomy and Verification Laboratory . She is attached to the Centre for Autonomous Systems Technology (CAST) at the University of Liverpool.
The podcasts aim to bring listeners closer to some of the academic experts, authors and innovative thinkers from the University who, through their in-depth analyses, research and discoveries are affecting positive change in the world today.
Each episode features one or more of our academic experts discussing research in their specialist field. The podcasts, which have been produced in collaboration with the University of Liverpool online programmes team, are intended to provide a quick route to insider knowledge on new trends and upcoming key issues.
The series, hosted by Canadian journalist and producer Neil Morrison, features in depth conversations.
Other episodes available include; ‘Big Data and the search for MH370’, ‘Suzi Gage on ‘Say Why to Drugs’, ‘Nano-medicine shrinks the cost of HIV treatment’, ‘Liverpool – Cradle of the Beatles’ and ‘Follow your nose’.
