Café Scientifique Manchester
Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.
Cafe Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.
When: 6pm on the last Thursday of every month

|Title||Why robots will NOT take over the world|
|Speaker||Dr Gavin Brown|
Computers seem to be getting smarter and smarter all the time. There is an often used tactic in the media, to promote the idea that "artificial intelligence" is a scary prospect, with robots taking over the world, and so on. In this talk I will argue why this is not going to happen, and how AI has in fact been in our lives for many years already, benefiting us in countless ways.
