What's the talk about?

In the 1999 film The Matrix, one of the lead characters Morpheus tells us that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is: ‘A singular consciousness that spawned an entire race of machines’. This has lead to many people being terrified of the concept of AI.

Are they correct to be afraid?

Dr. Karen Petrie from the School of Computing at the University of Dundee, will lead us in this whistle stop tour of AI and robotics.
