Person of Interest DVD: Discussion of the Future of AI

I was thrilled to discuss the future of AI with Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman, the creator and producer of the excellent TV show “Person of Interest”. The discussion is a special feature on the Season 3 DVD:

The show beautifully explores a number of important ethical issues regarding privacy, security, and AI. The third season and the coming fourth season focus on the consequences of intelligent systems developing agency and coming into conflict with one another.
