The smart machines revolution is re-shaping our lives and our societies. In this conversation with Cade Metz from The New York Times, Sir Nigel Shadbolt (one of Britain’s leading authorities on artificial intelligence) will argue that we are not about to be elbowed aside by a rebel army of super-intelligent robots of our own creation. But how we control them — in our private lives, careers and politics — will determine our collective well-being.

Join us for expert insight into how artificial intelligence will transform our lives.
