Could you fall in love with a robot?

Robot love
11 February 2016, 19:00 - 20:30

Join us for a thought-provoking evening of debate focusing on our future as humans alongside artificial intelligence.

What is it that separates us from a computer program or android? Is it our emotions and creativity? Could computers take over where human flaws lead to poor decisions?

Admission free, book your place here.

You might not believe what computers can already do. From acting as journalists to providing care. Come along to join our debate. Could you:

  • fall in love with an android?
  • rely on a robot to do your job? 
  • trust a computer to make big decisions on your behalf? Would you vote for an unbiased computer over a politician?

The evening will be guided by researchers looking at these ideas including Dr Nir Oren, University of Aberdeen and Professor John McCall, Robert Gordon University.

This event is brought to you by the Aberdeen Branch of the British Science Association as part of Future Debates, a series of events supported by the British Science Association.
