The Good Robot Podcast: Maya Indira Ganesh on the Myth of Autonomy

In this episode, Christina Gaw postdoctoral researchers Eleanor Drage and Kerry Mackereth chat to Maya Indira Ganesh, the course lead for the University of Cambridge Master of Studies programme in AI Ethics and Society. She transitioned to academia after working as a feminist researcher with international NGOs and cultural organisations on gender justice, technology, and freedom of expression. We discuss the human labour that is obscured when we say a machine is autonomous, the YouTube phenomenon of ‘Unboxing’ Apple products, and why AV ethics isn’t just about trolley problems.
