What human tasks can artificial technology not replace? Does the physical manifestation of AI change the way we interact with it, and how might we be manipulated by this? Do we put too much faith in AI? And what happens when AI goes wrong?

These are just some of the questions Guardian supporters asked host and executive editor for Membership Lee Glendinning to put to our panel in this edition of We Need to Talk About.

Joining Lee is Timandra Harkness broadcaster and author of ‘Big Data: does size matter?’, Dr Mariarosaria Taddeo, a research fellow and the deputy director of the Digital Ethics Lab of the Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford and Fellow of the Turing Institute. And finally Ian Sample, the Guardian’s science editor.

If you enjoy this pod, and want to catch up with the rest of the series, you can listen to discussions on topics ranging from Brexit and nationalism to the rise of veganism here. Guardian supporters can also suggest future topics for discussion by emailing us at weneedtotalkabout@theguardian.com.

Happy listening!
