I am A.I.

Who can you trust?

Are we lifting the lid of a pandora's box that will change the world as we know it for good or bad? Experts around the world are warning that mass job losses may only be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the dangers of A.I. technology. The world is left once again asking the age old question "Who can you trust?"

From the world of medicine, Professor John Wyatt has grappled with and published books about the ethical questions presented by Artificial Intelligence. Join him for ‘I am A.I.’, an event of three parts: a keynote presentation, a discussion with Justin Brierley and a time for questions and response afterwards.

Note: Professor John Lennox was originally due to take part in this event but regrettably was unable to attend due to ill health.
