AI, Robot – DeepMind: The Podcast (Season 1, Episode 4)

Selected as “New and Noteworthy” by Apple Podcasts, the highly-praised, award-nominated first season of “DeepMind: The Podcast” explores the fascinating world of artificial intelligence (AI). Join mathematician and broadcaster Hannah Fry as she meets world-class scientists and thinkers as they explain the foundations of AI, explore some of the challenges the field is wrestling with, and dives into the research that’s led to breakthroughs like AlphaGo and AlphaFold. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced researcher, join our journey into the past, present, and future of AI.

In this episode, Hannah explores the world of robotics. Do you ever find yourself confusing the science fiction of robots with the science of robotics? Looking beyond the sci-fi scenes with superintelligent robots that are uncannily human-like, the reality of building robots is more prosaic.

Inside DeepMind’s robotics laboratory, researchers are developing “embodied AI.” For example, robotic arms are learning from scratch how to pick up plastic bricks. But behind these simple actions are the cutting-edge challenges of bringing AI and robotics together. Listen as roboticists discuss training AI systems and robots to behave as intended, how we’re working to ensure our AI is safe, and why common sense is so important. 💡

“We want our systems to do something good for us, something we actually wanted, not just what we said we wanted.” – Jan Leike, Research Scientist at DeepMind
