    It’s the End of the World and I Feel Fine – Artificial Intelligence, Apocalypticism, and Human Identity

    Anthropologist Dr Beth Singler will introduce some of the key narratives round artificial intelligence that are affecting the public conception of the technology and its development. She will address the impact of science fiction as well as science fact on hopes and fears for humanity’s future in a world of ‘nearly human’ machines. Drawing on anthropological fieldwork at tech conferences, transhumanist gatherings, among the existential risk eco-system, and among online communities, she will explore how public perception on Artificial Intelligence is shaped and what those shapings might mean for the future of this technology.

    PANEL: IP EXPO HOT TOPIC: AI

    No longer purely in the realms of science fiction the use of AI has exploded in the past few years, already being used to improve healthcare, enable self-driving cars, and stop security breaches. Undoubtedly the hottest topic in IT right now, AI is redefining how we live, interact and do business – it is set to have a profound impact on our everyday lives.

    Most companies already use AI to some degree, for example it is now commonplace as part of a spam filter. However it is accepted wisdom that in the future AI will become a core part of every company’s technology strategy. Learn what is already possible with AI directly from the companies using or developing this technology and discover what will be possible in the near future.
