Description

Will the Fourth Industrial Revolution Bypass the Home of the First?
Sat 18 November 2017, 16:00-17:30
We The Curious (formerly At-Bristol)
£9 / £6.50

Manufacturing is poised for what is often called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a range of new technologies such as AI, robotics and nanotechnology expected to transform production and lead to major innovations. But other countries are at the forefront of many of these innovations, and investment by British companies is low. Will we miss out – or could a new Industrial Strategy help the UK stay near the technological frontier?

The panel, chaired by Rory Cellan-Jones (BBC), includes Giuliana Battisti (University of Warwick), Jonathan Haskel (Imperial College London), Richard Jones (University of Sheffield) and Maria Savona (University of Sussex).

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with

triodos-bank
