About the event

The contemplation of intelligence and/or agency among machines, in popular discourse, seems to settle on a future technological dystopia or conversely, a machine-led utopia. While the media creates these dichotomous futures, there needs to be deeper discussion on how intelligence, agency, and ethics in machines will affect society. In this talk, Prof. Winfield will reflect on the issues involved in the engineering of, and the ethics of, creating machines that are both, autonomous and ethical.
