Unbottling the AI Demon

Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has predicted that AI might be the greatest existential threat humans will have to face and Prof Stephen Hawking has warned that the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. But is technology already hurting us? And should we put the brakes on AI before it is too late?

Professor Sethu Vijayakumar, Professor of Robotics and Director of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, will join a distinguished panel to talk about the risks that could arise from the development of human-level artificial intelligence (AI).
