This week, a repeat of one of our favourite episodes from earlier this year - Spark 210: Surveillance, Sharing, Colour.

Next Friday, a brand new episode of Spark. We'll take a look at gender stereotypes in artificial intelligence design. In an article titled "Will robots make us sexist?", writer Soraya Chemaly, argues that as we develop robots to look more human, they'll eventually look male or female. And for her, that's where the trouble lies. We'll also hear from Friederike Eyssel, of the CITEC School of Cognitive Interaction Technology, about her research into gender stereotyping and robots.
