Live: Who rules the robots?

Recorded live at a Times+ event for Times subscribers, Matt Chorley and a stellar panel grapple with the ethical questions of the tech takeover.

He was joined by:

Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and the first minister to set up an app about themselves.

Timandra Harkness is presenter of the BBC Radio 4 series, FutureProofing, a science comedian and author of Big Data: Size Does Matter.

Dame Wendy Hall is Regius Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton, and last year carried out an independent review for the government on the artificial intelligence industry.

And Tom Whipple, The Times science editor, whose job it is to try to separate fact from science fiction, and try not to scare us all every morning.
