Homerton 250: Monsters and Me – a changing relationship

14th April at 3:00 pm4:30 pm

- Free

Part of the Homerton 250 Series of Events at Homerton College, Hills Road

200 years after the publication of Frankenstein, why do we still love to be horrified by the monstrous? As we enter a new phase in Artificial Intelligence, do we turn to gothic fiction or science fact? Is the threat a monsters of nightmare, or scientific progress overtaking our ability to adapt?

Exploring our second Burning Question, Professor Geoffrey Ward and Dr Beth Singler discuss what it means to be human in the age of AI.

Registration will open from 2.30PM. The discussion will last around an hour and will be followed by refreshments in the Great Hall.
