About the event:
“Join us for an evening exploring artificial intelligence and robotics, where guests will be able to interact with a biomimetic robot called MIRO, listen to music composed by artificially intelligent music composers and hear how concepts that were once the work of fiction are now changing the way we work.

Dr Will Slocombe, Senior Lecture in the Department of English, will consider how artificial intelligence has been represented in fiction, while Dr Paul Redmond, Director of Student Experience and Enhancement, will discuss the impact of AI on the jobs market. Dr Emily Collins, a theoretical and experimental roboticist at the University, will also be using her background in psychology and philosophy to explore the ways in which children perceive robots.
A drinks reception at the Victoria Gallery and Museum will follow the talks.”
