The next meeting of Talking Allowed in Leeds is on Monday 13th of November at 1.45pm. The venue is Veritas Ale and Wine Bar, Great George Street, Leeds.
We will consider the questions raised by developments in robotics, artificial intelligence and ‘big data’.
Will the investment required to roll out these technologies be forthcoming? If so, what will be the consequences for employment, economic equality and political power?
As well as almost daily articles in the press on this issue, the House of Lords have conducted a consultation. The questions they invited the public to consider can be found here: https://talkingallowedinleeds.wordpress.com/2017/11/02/questions-on-artificial-intelligence/
In December our meeting will take place on the second Monday as usual but it will be a social gathering during which we hope to garner topic suggestions for meetings in 2018.
