Robot-fan Tom speaks to Peter van der Putten, Assistant professor in AI & Creative Research at Leiden University, and Director, Decisioning & AI Solutions, at Pegasystems. Peter researches robots, in all their forms, looking particularly at the interface between human and machine.

He and Tom discuss emotional robots, misbehaving robots, and why it's important to experiment with machines that do bad, as well as machines that do good.
