Event description

Description

Kate Devlin is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computing at Goldsmiths. She works in the fields of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), investigating how people interact with and react to technology, to understand how emerging and future technologies will affect us and the society in which we live. She is currently focusing on cognition, sex, gender and sexuality and how these might be incorporated into cognitive systems such as sexual companion robots.

Artificial Sexuality: Sexual activity is central to our very existence; it shapes how we think, how we act and how we live. With advances in technology come machines that may one day think independently. What will happen to us when we form close relationships with these intelligent systems? Robotic intimacy is becoming part of our social fabric and we need to investigate these new opportunities and examine the long-term implications of sharing the world with non-human beings.
