Computers Won’t Kill Us

From Iain M Banks’s Culture novels to 2001: A Space Odyssey, we’ve often imagined the nightmare that intelligent machines will end up running the world. Meet Professor Nigel Shadbolt, whose The Digital Ape takes a less apocalyptic view of smart machines. How we retain control is a moral and political question of the uses we find for the ‘augmented intelligence’ computers can offer us. Chaired by Phil Harding.
