The Future of Technology

McNellie Tent
Sun 30 Sep

Since the birth of Google in September 1998, technology has transformed our lives. We look at the social consequences of living through a digital revolution and ask what the next 20 years may bring, from AI and robots stealing our jobs, to new conceptions of privacy, leisure, intelligence and selfhood. Should we be excited or afraid? Our panel includes: William Davies, author of Nervous States and editor of a new volume, Economic Science Fictions; Timandra Harkness, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s FutureProofing; and leading Scottish science fiction writer, Ken MacLeod.
