When algorithms discriminate: Robotics, AI and ethics - Talk to Al Jazeera

We live in an age of rapid technological advances where artificial intelligence (AI) is a reality, not a science fiction fantasy.

Al Jazeera talks to Stephen Roberts, professor of Machine Learning at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom, on the role machine learning plays in our lives today - and in the future.
