A BRADFORD professor will host a lecture looking at possible future conflicts between artificial intelligence and humankind.
Professor Hassan Ugail, Director of the Centre for Visual Computing at the University of Bradford is fronting Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Human vs Machine on Thursday.
He said: “Many people are scared of Artificial Intelligence and the potential impact it can have on society.
“This talk will look at how AI has developed and what its use in the future could look like.
“I will look at the good and the bad about this rapidly advancing technology and discuss why it may not be something we need to fear, but more something that needs to be properly understood.”
The lecture will look at the history of Artificial Intelligence, recent developments, the potential future use and the impact AI may have on the general public. Professor Ugail will also provide updates on his ground-breaking research projects including the facial ageing software which featured in the news last year.
The lecture takes place from 6 pm -7pm on the city campus.
Also taking place on the same day is a lecture on Artificial Intelligence and the Law by Ian Miller, Barrister and Deputy Head of the School of Law. He will consider how the introduction of Artificial Intelligence demands greater and more proactive scrutiny from the law, lawyers and legislators.
This lecture also takes place on Thursday from 5pm to 6pm, also on the city campus.
These lectures are free and open to everyone. To book a place visit bradford.ac.uk/ei/events/artificial-intelligence.php
