Digital humanism - how to cope with robots? June 7th



Tony Brewer says: 
'We benefit from robots but what about the risks? We need to plan for when artificial intelligence surpasses human intelligence, which could be in the next 20 years.'

Tony will lead a discussion on a humanist response to AI, on Thursday 7th June at 7.30pm at New Cross Learning, 283-285 New Cross Road, SE14 6AS, the community library in the row of shops between The Venue nightclub and New Cross Gate station. 

Tony will talk on the technical concepts, applications, risks and benefits of AI, before general discussion of how to cope with AI from a humanist standpoint, ie living by evidence, reason and our common humanity, and promoting happiness in this life.

This meeting, postponed from snowbound March, is one of the South East London Humanist Group (SELHuG) meetings on the first Thursday of every month, usually at New Cross Learning. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided, and everyone chips in £2 to cover the cost of the premises hire. Everybody welcome.
