In 1816, nineteen-year-old Mary Shelley wrote a story about creating a non-biological life-form. Her creation, Frankenstein has fuelled creative imagination for over 200 years.

Now with the possibilities of AI redefining our human+machine future, Shelley’s story has been reimagined by one of our leading authors. How close are we to a future in which homo sapiens is no longer the smartest being on the planet? What will we do when we get there? And what are the responsibilities of creation and the possibilities of artificial intelligence?

Join us as Jeanette Winterson reads from her latest creation, Frankissstein, as she takes to the stage at CogX – London’s Woodstock of AI – for an evening of animated readings and thought-provoking entertainment.

Fiction, at its finest, helps us makes sense of the world around us. Join us to gain an insight into the possibilities of technology, transhumanism and even transsexuality.
