Event description

Description

Artificial intelligence and machine learning have already begun to revolutionise society. On one hand, this makes life easier, on the other, it threatens our freedom and security.

So how far are we prepared to let AI remake our world? And will we even have a say in it?

Join Australia’s Chief Scientist Alan Finkel, machine learning expert Professor Anton van den Hengel, and data policy expert Ellen Broad, the author of Made by Humans: The AI Condition, for a roundtable discussion on the benefits and pitfalls of artificial intelligence.

The discussion will be moderated by The Royal Institution of Australia's lead scientist, Alan Duffy.

Every time we decide which technologies we allow into our lives we must ask ourselves, ‘what kind of society do we want to be?’ - Alan Finkel.

“If we don’t invest heavily in AI now our ideological position will be irrelevant because we’ll just be importing the products and services from overseas.” - Anton van den Hengel.
