We asked the public to send in their questions to our panel of experts, to find out what challenges and opportunities they think AI will present us with in the next decade. Will AI affect our jobs? What risks might AI pose on society? Can we train AIs to make moral and ethical decisions?
Physicist, author and broadcaster Jim Al Khalili will be hosting this debate at the Manchester Science Festival, which explores whether AI can increase our capacity to understand the mysteries of the universe and tackle some of our most pressing real-world challenges. Get your thinking caps on, as you’ll be invited to put your questions to a very special line-up of people in the know and discover just how far the boundaries of AI are being pushed.
The panel will include:
Dame Wendy Hall, Regius Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton and Executive Director of the Web Science Institute
Professor Neil Lawrence, Chair in Neuro and Computer Science University of Sheffield and machine learning researcher at Amazon
Dr Ewa Luger, Chancellor’s Fellow in Digital Arts and Humanities studying AI Ethics
