Event description
Local author Heather Child wonders who will make our decisions in the future?

About this Event

Who will make our decisions in the future? So rapidly is a transhumanist near-future becoming reality that science fiction can hardly keep up. In this talk, local author Heather Child will explain how data company Cambridge Analytica managed to target people's 'inner demons', and how the networked world will soon know us so well that it will second-guess our every move. Amid room-mapping vacuums, self-filling fridges and bikinis that warn of sunburn, we will be tempted to sit back, relax and leave decisions about our lives to the artificially intelligent assistants that know what's best for us.

Doors open 7pm, this event will start at 7.30 (preceded by a short AGM for Friends Of Bishopston Library).

A cash bar will be available for hot drinks and soft drinks.

Proceeds go to Friends Of Bishopston Library - we provide facilities, equipment and events at the library.
