Café Scientifique with Professor Peter McOwan as part of the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014.

Event details

The fields of computer science, artificial intelligence and robotics are among the fastest growing in science. Some of the world’s biggest corporations are backing them and are hoping to integrate future technologies into our everyday lives. But what exactly does the future hold? Will we live in a world dominated by machines? Could we ever create a conscious machine? And what would it mean for us if we did?

Peter McOwan is Professor of Computer Science in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary, University of London.
