Autonomous weapons, driverless cars and friendly spies in the home

SGR conference and AGM

Saturday 3 November 2018

Is artificial intelligence evolving quicker than the regulation to manage it? Are we sufficiently able to imagine what major problems may emerge, and can it even be effectively regulated? This conference, with presentations and interactive sessions will explore both obvious threats and more subtle ones.
 

Speakers include:
 
Dr Peter Burt - consultant to Drone Wars UK
Sarah Woods - award winning BBC Radio playwright on the social and emotional implications of AI and robotics
Prof John Finney - co-author of 'Robotics Ethics', a UNESCO report by the World Commission on the Ethics of Scientific Knowledge and Technology
 
A chance to tell Whitehall what you think:
 
Self-driving cars: their social, ethical and environmental implications – a group conversation. Perry Walker of Talk Shop and Fellow of Involve, leads a conversation on self-driving cars using a specially devised discussion kit.  The outcomes of which will be part of a report to be submitted to the Department for Transport and other stakeholders.
