“C3P0” “BB8”  When someone says, “Artificial Intelligence,” we usually think about ROBOTS!  In episode four, RADIO AI Director Cindy Mason, invites us to learn more about the robots we find in our world - from the shopping mall to outer space missions.  Robots have many kinds of sensors and some can even fly or go underwater!  In this podcast we learn the answers to 3 big questions: 1) What is a robot?  2) How do we interact with it? And 3) Who’s controlling it?   

Dr. Mason was on the NASA robotics team that sent the first teleoperated undersea vehicle to Antarctica.  She also created a novel kind of astronomy called “Pass the Star” with cooperative robotic telescopes.  She once staged a “Robot Fashion Show” to demonstrate the need for Robot WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) so people can trust robots from appearances.   She also pioneered the idea of giving robots Artificial Compassion(TM).
