What is AI? What are moral agents? Who controls the future? What is responsible AI? Send you questions to

About Ben’s Machine Ethics Podcast

Ben Runs a machine Ethics Podcast regularly here:

The podcast, and other content was first created to extend Ben’s growing interest in both the AI domain and in the Ethics associated. Over the last few years the podcast has grown into a place of discussion and dissemination of important ideas, not only in AI but in tech ethics generally. As the interviews unfold on AI implementation or abstract technology ideas they often vere into current affairs, the future of work, environmental issues, and more. Though the core is still AI and AI Ethics, we release content that is broader and therefore hopefully more useful to the general public and practitioners.
