Living with Intelligent Machines

As the role, function and power of computers alters, so the relationship between ourselves and computers affects what one might call our elemental assumptions. Our systems of accountability and intelligence are shifting for example; as our notions of what it means to be human as against machine-like. Research in this theme is investigating the evolving nature of this ‘moral distinction’ between person and machine, characterising philosophical shifts and technological possibility.
