Samira Hayat was one of the few women in Pakistan studying electrical engineering. In this interview, she talks about her research exploring networks of drones. Rescue missions performed by drone networks are highly involved, covering areas such as detection and communication. She is particularly interested in determining optimal processes from a mathematical perspective.

talking-machinesEpisode seven of season two is a little different than our usual episodes; Ryan and Katherine returned from a conference where they got to talk with Neil Lawrence from University of Sheffield about some of the larger issues surrounding machine learning and society. They discuss anthropomorphic intelligence, data ownership, and the ability to empathize. The entire episode is given over to this conversation in hopes that it will spur more discussion of these important issues as the field continues to grow.
