Kazuo Ishiguro is the only living British winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature - having written household names such as Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day.

Krishnan speaks to Kazuo Ishiguro about artificial intelligence's impact on human relationships and his fears for the future of liberal democracy.
