Future Talk

Future Talk examines the global impact of technology, both for good and for bad, and tries to see where the new technology is leading us.With leading edge guests, videos and reports from the field, we try to examine scientific developments from every possible angle and analyze both the short and long term effects on our lives. Producer and host is Martin Wasserman


In late October, Future Talk recorded an interview with John Markoff, Pulitzer Prize-winning science reporter for the New York Times, and author of the new book “Machines of Loving Grace: The Quest for Common Ground between Humans and Robots.” Markoff claims that there are two main tracks to robotic development: one in which robots augment humans, and one in which they replace humans. Our future will depend on which track prevails.
