Life-saving applications in medicine, an intelligence that makes the best decision in critical situations, or simply an assistant that does boring, repetitive work for us. More than almost any other technology, AI is associated with the implicit promise of a universal problem solver, a better future even.

We talked to him about the opportunities associated with AI, the morals behind the machines, plus the concepts of guilt and responsibility with autonomous systems.
