Isaac Asimov suggested three laws of robotics as ethical safeguards in the development of artificial intelligence, but as Alexa guides our homes and automated cars replace human drivers, are those three laws enough? The power of A.I. is opening doors to limitless possibilities—are we ready?

Michael Wellman, the Lynn A. Conway Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, participated in the recent Issac Asimov Memorial Debate on Artificial Intelligence, which was held at the American Museum of Natural History and was hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson. You can see the entire debate, which took place February 13,  in this video.
