Swarming robots (mp3)
BBC: "Adam Hart reports on the latest developments in controlling groups of robots, and asks why models taken from the behaviour of social insects such as bees, ants and termites may be far more complex than previously thought. He also delves deep into the cells of plants looking at how the physical and chemical triggers for plant growth might be useful in robot design." Read on

The Meme of Our Time - Alex Rivera (audio stream)
Filmmaker Alex Rivera has been interested in drones for years. His 2008 sci-fi thriller, Sleep Dealer, imagines a dystopian future where the U.S.-Mexico border is aggressively policed by drones, and migrant workers can only cross it virtually, by plugging their bodies into a digital network of robots. He told Steve Paulson why he believes drones are the meme of our time.

The Army's Robot Recruiter [mp3]
"Sgt. Star is a chatbot designed to influence potential recruits to enlist in the US Army. So how do we feel about that? Alex talks to the Army and a reporter who's covered recruitment abuses to figure out if we're better or worse off for having a Siri who can talk us into going to war." Read on

Engineering Intelligence [mp3]
"Despite the technological leaps made in the realm of artificial intelligence, people often object to the idea that the minds of machines can ever replicate the minds of humans. But for engineers, the proof is in the processing. Brooke talks with Stanford lecturer and entrepreneur Jerry Kaplan about how the people who make robots view the field of AI."

The uncanny valley in robot design (mp3)
"This hypothesis was coined by robotics professor Masahiro Mori in 1970. It refers to an increasing revulsion for some, as robots seem increasingly humanlike in their appearance and movement. Ayse Saygin is studying the human response to robots as their role is increasing in areas such as healthcare and education." Read on
