Probability, causality and interaction

I just finished listening to this interview with Judea Pearl, which I enjoyed very much:

I particularly like the way his discussion fluidly weaves in philosophical issues of causality, counterfactuals, etc. with relatively practical issues of robots interacting with people. I am particularly glad to see someone of his (theoretical) stature take the notion and possibilities of human-agent interactions so seriously!
