JIM AL-KHALILI
Science: What’s Next?
Want to know what’s in store for the
human race? Theoretical physicist Jim
Al-Khalili OBE beams down to BookFest
to take on all the big questions. Every
day scientists come up with ingenious
solutions to problems that will define
our future. Jim tackles everything from
whether teleportation is really possible
(spoiler: it is), to what we’ll do if artificial
intelligence finally takes over.
Touching on
everything from
genetics to transport,
and nanotechnology
to bionics, this is a
fascinating, fun and
informative insight into
what science can tell us
about our future.
