Event description

Description

Automation has impacted production lines for years, but now it’s transforming white collar work too. UEA’s Rudy Lapeer will talk about the past, present and future of robotics, while Fiona Lettice will discuss technology’s disruptive effects on business. Her collaborator, James Duez (Rainbird), will join the panel, discussing the use of artificial intelligence to augment human abilities in the fields of data analysis, efficiency and automation.

These free events, held in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich, are open to everyone, and no prior knowledge is needed. The speakers will talk briefly and then the audience are invited to ask questions and offer opinions as the discussion opens up.

This year's series will be relocating temporarily to the Millennium Library at The Forum, while Dragon Hall undergoes renovation to open as the National Centre for Writing in summer 2018.

All events start at 7.30pm and should last until 9.30pm, or when the energy dries up!
