As reported in my previous two blog entries How and Why do we have Culture?, and What do Aliens look like?, I've become involved in National Science Week, a major part of which has been structured around Big Questions. I've had some fun the last few days responding to some of the big questions - which are really good. Here are the questions and responses I've made so far:
When will people invent robots to fight in wars?
Could you create a robot with a mind of its own?
Can we invent a robot that will do everything for you?
Will the human brain ever be capable of understanding itself?
What actually is Intelligence? Do we understand it?
Is it possible that AI technology may get out of control?
