The Impact of Al on Politics & the Professions

Tues 9 Oct 2018, 6.45-7.45pm

Baille Gifford Big Tent


How far should our lives be directed and controlled by powerful digital systems – and on what terms? What does it mean for social justice when algorithms determine our access to jobs, insurance, loans and healthcare?

Artificial intelligence (AI) and related technologies seem certain to bring huge changes within society and how politicians confront the shift is one of the great debates of the 21st century. In this session, Jamie Susskind (Future Politics) and Prof Richard Susskind (The Future of the Professions) will focus on AI’s impact on work and politics.

Introduced by Toby Mundy, chair, Wimbledon BookFest
