10th July 2019 | The Devonshire

We live in a world increasingly ruled by technology, which now shapes and governs our lives seemingly as much as laws and regulations. But unlike laws and regulations, the influence of tech in our lives too often goes unchallenged by citizens and governments. We comfort ourselves with the old refrain that technology has no morals and is free of prejudice – only its users are fallible.

But is this actually true? UCL’s Dr Robert Elliott Smith has 30 years’ experience designing and teaching Artificial Intelligence and his latest research indicates that, in today's world, this is dangerously not the case.

Find out how modern scientific perspectives suggest an alternative direction, one which offers an opportunity, not just to ‘fix’ algorithmic prejudice, but to use algorithms to create a more progressive and unified technological world.

We'll be at the gorgeous Devonshire Members' Club. 8am-9:30am, 10th July. Tickets are £20 and include breakfast and Robert's brilliant new book, Rage Inside the Machine.
