Swindon Festival of Literature
Fri 11 May
ALAN WINFIELD – on the societal impact of Robotics and Artificial intelligence.
Presented in association with the Swindon Philosophical Society
What is the Artificial Intelligence that makes robots smart? What is the future of robots in society? What are the ethical perspectives of Artificial Intelligence? Any other questions?
Professor of Robot Ethics at UWE, co-founder of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, guest on Radio 4’s Life Scientific, Alan Winfield is an advocate for robot ethics and author of Robotics: A Very Short Introduction. In it, he explains how it is that robotics can be both a success story and a disappointment, how robots can be both ordinary and remarkable and looks at the science behind them and their applications to everyday life.
