Machines and Morality: Can AI be Ethical? – Thursday 26 July 2018


The speakers at this meeting will be addressing the question of the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence - is is it possible for machines to have morality? And to do this, they'll be unpacking the hype currently surrounding the subject of AI – how much of it is justified, and how do they see these new technologies influencing human society over the coming decades?


Speakers at this meeting will include Stephanie Mathieson, Policy Manager at Sense About Science and, subject to confirmation, a speaker from Behavioural Science at Ipsos.
