In this episode we discuss the social responsibility of robotics manufactures with Ryan Gariepy (seated), CTO of Canadian company Clearpath Robotics and in the Artificial Intelligence community, with Stuart Russell (in the tyre), Professor of Artificial Intelligence at Berkeley University, California. Both spoke during the CCW.

Clear path Robotics recently took the bold step of become the first robotics company with defense contracts to come forward and support a ban on Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems. Ryan tells us why. Stuart points out that there had been little interest within the AI community to accept social responsibility for its creations – but that is changing.
