The Risks and Benefits of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a feature of science fiction writing for almost a century, but it is only in more recent years that the prospect of truly autonomous robotics - even those that have only limited functionality - have become viable. While this potentially will provide great opportunities, the development of AI is likely to impact upon the very functioning of society.
In this context, the Risks and Benefits of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Workshop aims to provide media and security professionals with an in-depth understanding of the implications that the rapid advancement of AI technology may affect the global community in both the physical and structural spheres and the potential impact of the future evolution of such technology, especially in terms of security. Emphasis will be given to the way in which AI and autonomous robotics can be represented and communicated in the media.
