A new dawn?
Humanoid robot
For decades, we've been fascinated and frightened by science fiction... the robots of superhuman intelligence who have the power to destroy us.

Rodney Brooks believes that in two decades, science fact will catch up with science fiction and we will have robotic humans and human robots.

But he also insists that there's nothing to fear. Lyse Doucet talks to him about the interface between human and machine.


The interview can be watched in full on Monday 19 August on BBC World and BBC News 24 at the following times:

BBC News 24 (times shown in BST) 0430, repeated 2230

BBC World (times shown in GMT) 0330, repeated 0830, 1130, 1530, 1830, 2330
