Welcome to Tony Prescott’s web pages!
22nd Jan. 2021. Perspective piece Are friends electric? the benefits and risks of human-robot relationships with Julie Robillard published in iScience (free download).
I am a psychologist, computational neuroscientist, computer scientist and roboticist, or, for brevity, a cognitive scientist. I am especially interested in how the mind works and whether, when we make things like AIs and robots, they might also have minds; perhaps, one day, a sense of self. I am also interested in how these new technologies might change human lives and how we see ourselves.
This site will host copies of some of my previous blogs and unpublished content along with intermittent new blog posts.
