If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthew Ireland.

We are interacting with AI on a daily basis, and decisions made by algorithms are affecting our governments and corporations. But how do they work, and should we be worried about them?

This talk is going to examine the basics of AI, using an example of Genetic Algorithms in training a Neural Network. Then, it will approach the issue from an ethical point of view, particularly the influence that these algorithms have in our minds and societies. It examines the ethical implications of their use, and the risks in case current trends continue.
