Isabel Pedersen speaks with Katina Michael on her latest short paper titled "Home is where the AI Heart is" where she reflects on the topic of artificial intelligence and how it is commonly understood. She uses the science fiction genre to illustrate some of the potentialities. We ask her about the films Her and Ex Machina in the context of radical innovations. Pedersen's paper will appear in a special issue "Unintended Consequences: the Paradox of Technological Potential" edited by Ramona Pringle, Katina Michael and M.G. Michael for IEEE Technology and Society appearing in the March 2017 issue.
