Event description


Future Advocacy is a social enterprise working on the greatest challenges humanity faces in the 21st Century. Their work focuses on stretching the decision-making horizons of government, business, and citizens to allow global problems to be solved.

One of their main topics of focus is the impacts of Artificial Intelligence on the economy, and on normal people's lives. Their most recent report looks at the impact of AI in UK constituencies, giving an estimate of the percentage of jobs at risk of automation in each area by 2030.

This talk will examine the impacts of AI on people's prospects, the challenges and opportunities it will bring, and examine how we can make AI a driver of prosperity and ensure it has a positive impact.

Future Advocacy was founded by Olly Buston who was a key architect of the Make Poverty History Campaign. Olly was Europe Director of ‘ONE’ for 7 years and has also worked as Director of the Walk Free anti-slavery movement, and as Senior Advocacy Officer for Oxfam International in Washington, DC.
