Artificial intelligence: how little has to go wrong?
London EC1M 6EL

Scientists for Global Responsibility Conference 2018
Artificial intelligence: how little has to go wrong?
Autonomous weapons, driverless cars and friendly spies in the home

This conference, with presentations and interactive sessions will explore both obvious threats and more subtle ones.

Speakers include:

Peter Burt - consultant to Drone Wars
Sarah Woods - award winning BBC Radio playwright on the social and emotional implications of AI and robotics
Prof John Finney - author of 'Robotics Ethics' a UNESCO report by the World Commission on the Ethics of Scientific Knowledge and Technology

Further details to be announced soon...
