Website update

Anyone who pokes around iankerr.ca will notice—much to my chagrin—that that I haven’t updated my website in quite some time. Yes, I totally dropped the ball!!

Having had it hang over my head for far too long, I have finally completed the update!

Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing a number of articles, book chapters, peer reviewed articles and other publications that, in the mad rush of modern life, never made their way onto my site. You won’t be surprised at the topics: AI and robots still dominate my academic endeavours. But you might find some surprising crossovers (copyright, health care and more!).

You’ll be able to find all my updates here on my blog, or follow me on Twitter, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Talk Radio On The Call To Ban Killer Robots

In this 25 minute interview with Roger Kinkade and Rob Breakenridge of Newstalk770, CHQR Radio, I talk at length about autonomous weapons and the AI community’s call to ban “killer robots”. We talk about what a killer robot is, why they are likely to be developed, what the dangers are if we don’t ban them and a number of broader issues regarding the future of artificial intelligence.
