The publisher of my newly released book Here Be Dragons: Science, Technology and the Future of Humanity is Oxford University Press. As part of the marketing their books, they also run the OUPblog, where their authors are given the opportunity to contribute blog posts on topics related to the books. Today, the last in a series of three blog posts of mine was published at OUPblog. These are my three posts:
- (1) Let us not run blindfolded into the minefield of future technologies, January 15, 2016.
(2) Can a robot be conscious?, January 22, 2016.
(3) Does the ‘Chinese room’ argument preclude a robot uprising?, January 28, 2016.
