We're beginning to see more and more jobs being performed by machines, even creative tasks like writing music or painting can now be carried out by a computer.
But how and when will machines be able to explain themselves? Should we be worrying about an artificial intelligence taking over our world or are there bigger and more imminent challenges that advances in machine learning are presenting here and now?
Join Professor Brian Cox, the Royal Society Professor of Public Engagement, as he brings together experts on AI and machine learning to discuss key issues that will shape our future. Panelists will include:
- Professor Jon Crowcroft FRS, Marconi Professor of Networked Systems at the University of Cambridge
- Professor Joanna Bryson, Reader in AI Ethics, University of Bath and Affiliate, Center for Information Technology Policy, Princeton University
- Professor Sabine Hauert, Lecturer in Robotics at the University of Bristol
- Professor Murray Shanahan, Professor of Cognitive Robotics at Imperial College London
- Professor Peter Donnelly FRS FMedSci, Director, Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, and Professor of Statistical Science, University of Oxford
The Royal Society’s ‘Science Matters’ series will give the public access to scientists who are experts on the science and technology issues with the greatest global impact. You'll be able to pitch the question that matters to you the most, to help direct the experts' discussion.
