Will robots and artificial intelligence help us in our daily lives, or steal our jobs and discriminate against us? Manuela Saragosa talks to Max Tegmark, who has just written a book about what it means to be human in an age of artificial intelligence. In it he recounts how he was left in tears after a recent visit to London's Science Museum.

She also interviews Noel Sharkey, professor of artificial intelligence and robots at the University of Sheffield.

And regular commentator James Srodes has a warning about letting computers make decisions for us.
