INTERVIEW WITH MARK STEPHEN MEADOWS AUTHOR OF “WE ROBOT”

On 26 February I posted regarding Mark Stephen Meadow’s book “We Robot” (please see https://kevinmorris101.wordpress.com/2011/02/26/we-robot-by-mark-stephen-meadows/).

In yesterday’s issue of the Kurzweilai.net newsletter is a link to an interview with the author which makes interesting reading. Among other matters Meadow’s discusses how robots have the potential to increase inequality (I.E. as the western world forges ahead with applying robotics rich societies increase their wealth while the developing world lags ever further behind). Other interesting topics touched on are the use of robots by the military and the ethical consequences flowing from the greater use of such technology.
