From Roombas to drones, scientists are developing machines to be more and more self-sufficient. But even if they’re programmed to do good—what happens when something goes wrong? If a robot ‘accidentally’ kills someone, who’s to blame? Josh Zepps interviews the following guests:

  • Peter Asaro @PeterAsaro (New York, NY) Professor at The New School
  • David Hanson (Dallas, TX) Robotics Designer
  • Noel Sharkey @StopTheRobotWar (Sheffield, United Kingdom) Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics
  • Rachel Vanlandingham (St. Petersburg, FL) Assistant Professor of Law
  • Mary Wareham @marywareham (Washington, DC) Director of the Arms division of Human Rights Watch

Originally aired on the Huffington Post, May 6, 2013.
