Artificial intelligence is already revolutionising our everyday lives, with the impact of AI only set to increase as the technology advances.
But what does this mean for society in general? Will robots take our jobs? Will humanity lose control to some form of superintelligence, or is the existential threat of AI being overhyped?
Join a panel of Oxford experts in AI ethics and application as they discuss the risks and benefits of artificial intelligence.
