The Centre for AI and Digital Ethics presents Dr Iyad Rahwan, Managing Director of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development.
In this talk, using only his cartoons, Dr Rahwan will explore the popular fears of AI, their nature, their causes, and how to counter them.
This event will be hybrid but for those attending in person, the current exhibition SWARM is open in Science Gallery before the event begins.
Join us for a screening and discussion of River(dir. J. Peedom & J. Nizeti, 2021), the fourth film in The Nonhuman series produced in partnership between Screening Ideas and the Human Rights and Animal Ethics Research Network.
Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our journeys; flowed through our cultures and dreams. River takes its audience on a journey through space and time; spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming, the film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before. Its union of image, music and sparse, poetic script create a film that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognising their vulnerability.
Registration is free but capacity is strictly limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
