I’m looking forward to speaking at this TEDx event at the end of this month. The speaker lineup is diverse, and I’m sure we will all contribute in different ways to ‘Light Up the Future’ – the theme of these TEDx talks. I’ll be speaking about how AI and robotics, in common with all technologies, can be harnessed for good, or mis-used by designers and operators of AI systems – either intentionally or unintentionally. In particular, misuse of AI and robots can result in certain new and quite unique problems, related to the way in which we humans understand intentional systems. If you are interested in whether robots will, or should, be our new best friends, then come along to the talks at Bath Abbey on 29th Sept!
