In this week’s podcast Jonathan and Eric discuss the speculative future of artificial intelligence, and what it can mean for the future of the human race. Could the stories in Alex Garland’s film Ex Machina come true? If so what are the legal issues behind artificial intelligence, part-human beings and agents they control? Is this pure science fiction or are we closer than you think? The podcast also briefly reflects on the life of British scientist Alan Turing widely considered to be the father of artificial intelligence and a key figure in developing computing during the Second World War. Turing died an untimely death in 1954 aged just 41.
