If you have a question about this talk, please contact Rachel Sweet.

200 years after the publication of Frankenstein, why do we still love to be horrified by the monstrous? As we enter a new phase in Artificial Intelligence, do we turn to gothic fiction or science fact? Is the threat a monster of nightmare, or scientific progress overtaking our ability to adapt?

Professor Geoffrey Ward and Dr Beth Singler will be discussing what it means to be human in the age of Artificial Intelligence. The discussion will be moderated by Dr Louise Joy.

The discussion will last about an hour, and will be followed by refreshments in the Great Hall
