presents Machines of Loving Grace: The Quest for Common Ground Between Humans and Robots
In conversatio
n with Steven Levy

As robots are increasingly integrated into modern society – on the battlefield and the road, in business, education, and health – those who design the machines have a stark choice to make. They can design systems to enhance the quality of human work and life – or they can design systems that replace humans entirely. Both approaches will reshape the modern world. In Machines of Loving Grace, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter John Markoff – a longtime Silicon Valley veteran who was the first reporter to describe the World Wide Web – explores this issue and searches for an answer to one of the most important questions of our age: will these robots help us… or will they replace us? Markoff discusses the question and the stories and characters he’s encountered in his reporting with Steven Levy, author of several acclaimed books on technology and editor-in-chief for the tech hub at Medium.
