My favourite quote from my recent interview with Sebastian Thrun for The Economist "To the extent we are seeing the beginning of a battle between artificial intelligence (AI) and humanity, I am 100% loyal to people,” he says. http://www.economist.com/news/technology-quarterly/21662654-sebastian-thrun-pioneer-googles-autonomous-cars-wants-teach-people-how

Another two self-driving car stories from me this week: Google's very own car company in The Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/aug/01/google-auto-car-making-company?CMP=share_btn_tw and the fussy autonomous vehicles that won't drive you unless everything is just right http://spectrum.ieee.org/cars-that-think/transportation/safety/google-patents-way-for-robocars-to-decide-when-not-to-drive

By me for MIT Technology Review - seeing eye robots for the blind https://lnkd.in/bqcDFW2
Robots could help the visually impaired do things like determine which bus pass to use.

The Manhattan Project: It took 5 years to build a bomb, it'll take 170 to clean up the mess. By me for E&T Magazine http://eandt.theiet.org/magazine/2015/07/manhattan-project-atomic-nuclear.cfm
Its 70 years since two devastating atomic bombs forced Japans surrender and ended the Second World War. The energy in atoms has since been harnessed for peaceful ends, but an isolated Manhattan Project site shows both the promise of nuclear power and the limits of our ability to cope with it.

By me for New Scientist, ASA plans unmanned air traffic control for drones https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn27979-nasa-plans-smart-air-traffic-control-for-drones/
If every home has a drone, then every home will serve as an airport – and that will need a new kind of air traffic control
