Episode 4: Can Free Will Be Programmed?

Updated: Apr 17, 2019

Can a machine make choices outside its programming? How do you differentiate between an act of free will and a mere bug in the programming?

In this episode, hosts Justin and Carmen explore whether or not the AI being Sophie has free will— and if she does, what that means for her and for humanity.
