Developing ethical and inclusive society and business in the age of AI
29 Sept, 5.30 – 7pm
Is intelligence a human right? How will we live and work with machines in the future? Join us to discuss with our panel of experts.
We expect that AI will always win over humans in a game of chess, but many of us believe that only humans can make complex judgments requiring ability to process information in creative ways, or that require empathy and emotional intelligence. Does this hold true? And what if we are not the only intelligent ones? What our relationship with AI should look like? How do we want to relate to AI in our work and leisure? This session will discuss how the AI advances will continue to disrupt our lives and what we could do to ensure an ethical approach to AI in order to ensure more equal and just society.
The role of AI in Creative and Cultural Industries
22 Sept, 5.30 – 7pm
Will AI change what we wear, what we are seeing on TV, what books we read? Join us to explore in conversation with our expert panel.
Living with Machines: human stories from the industrial age is co-curated with the British Library.
