Guardian Live: A Robotics World? Panel discussion

Key facts

Genre: Talk with live subtitling


In partnership with Guardian Live, this panel talk brings together leading thinkers in robotics, economics and politics to look at the influence of robots, artificial intelligence and increasing levels of automation on jobs, industry and the economy.

The discussion will look at those job sectors that will be the most heavily affected, and will explore how globalisation is evolving under the influence of robotics. The panel will also attempt to look ahead at the prospect of a post-work world and whether new forms of capitalism may be required in order for humans to thrive in a robot’s world.

Panellists include: University of Sheffield Emeritus Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and head judge on TV’s Robot Wars Noel Sharkey. Dr Sabine Hauert, Lecturer at Bristol Robotics Lab and Bristol University, and co-founder of online community Robohub also joins us, along with Nick Srnicek, co-author of Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work, and Aditya Chakrabortty, Senior Economics Commentator at the Guardian.

For ages 18+. Doors open at 6.30pm.
