Podcast: Sex & Robots w/ Dr David Levy and Kate Devlin

Welcome to this panel discussion event The Future of Intimacy: Sex and Robots that was recorded on the 26th of October at an over-capacity audience at East London’s Second Home.  We invited two pioneers in the area Dr. David Levy a British AI expert who wrote the first book about this area entitled Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-robot Relationships in 2007 and Dr. Kate Devlin a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London to come in and unpack this new technological development full of moral and ethical implications.

This was a fascinating discussion one in which leaves many more questions remaining than answers. We picked up the chat with Kate where we ask her just why this topic seems to have put society into a panic.
