Will artificial intelligence be superior to the human brain? - LIMITED RETURNS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR

Monday 7 March: 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RW

Artificial intelligence could be of great benefit to society, producing innovative discoveries and providing humans with more leisure time. However, workers are concerned that, more and more, jobs are being taken over by artificial intelligence. We can see this in the context of the current trend for robots to work in car factories and driverless trains, and also in the future trend for driverless cars. The questions are will artificial intelligence be superior to the human brain? Can artificial intelligence ever be as creative as the human brain? And will artificial intelligence contribute to the benefit of society? We have four outstanding speakers, Dr Hermann Hauser, Dr Mateja Jamnik, Professor Trevor Robbins and Professor Alan Winfield, in the fields of information technology, robotics and neuroscience to discuss the implications of supercomputers and machine learning to promote artificial intelligence for overtaking the human brain. This event, organised by Professor Barbara Sahakian, will be moderated by Tom Feilden, Science Correspondent for the Today Programme on BBC Radio 4.
