The Nature and History of AI

April 19, 2022


In this recording of a live talk Dr. Rob Wortham, a senior lecturer at the University of Bath, seeks to answer one of the most pressing questions of our time, covering all aspects of modern life. AI is seen by some as a panacea for the world’s problems, by others as a chimera, heralding in the end of era of humanity. Given this context, this talk explores the important dimensions of the history of AI, its current state of play and its possible future trajectories. According to the UN, Artificial Intelligence represents a global existential issue which needs to be consciously understood and managed much better than we do now. The talk was held on April 19th 2022.
