New on The Conveyor Podcast: Robot 101: Learning how to communicate and interact with humans
The possibility of robot overlords? Fortunately, we don’t have to worry about that for a while.

Williams explains the process of teaching robots to think and act like humans and the technical, social and moral challenges scientists must contend with when doing so.
