Consciousness is a largely unexplored phenomenon that science is just beginning to stumble into the exploration of, having derided it for generations. Engineered consciousness is wholly unexplored but is going to have an impact on our lives like nothing before it.

Peter B Lloyd is a PhD candidate at UKC. He previously studied undergraduate computer science at Cardiff University and philosophy at Oxford. He has published essays on consciousness, and on science fiction—such as The Matrix. His doctoral research is on the use of computational intelligence in map design, but he has a long-standing interest in the nature of consciousness and its embodiment in the physical world. In this talk he proposes that embodying consciousness, and hence morality, in robots is our only hope of avoiding the existential threat posed by merciless psychopathic machines.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
