You and AI – with Jim Al-Khalili at the Manchester Science Festival
We asked the public to send in their questions to our panel of experts, to find out what challenges and opportunities they think AI will present us with in the next decade. Will AI affect our jobs? What risks might AI pose on society? Can we train AIs to make moral and ethical decisions?
The event was hosted by Professor Jim Al-Khalili OBE FRS, physicist, author and broadcaster.
On the panel were: Dame Wendy Hall DBE FRS FREng, Regius Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton and Executive Director of the Web Science Institute
Professor Neil Lawrence, Chair in Neuro and Computer Science University of Sheffield and machine learning researcher at Amazon
Dr Ewa Luger, Chancellor’s Fellow in Digital Arts and Humanities studying AI Ethics
