What will we do when the robots come? It has been more than 50 years since HAL first played with our minds and the idea of a sentient machine. In those 50 years, the world has changed 4 times over. A lot of the work of robots cannot be seen directly, but as a society we profit from their output everyday. 

This week we will make the invisible visible, as we explore the applications and implications of robots, cobots, machine learning and artificial intelligence. 

HAL was said to have malfunctioned as he was confronted with his own fallibility. Which makes him almost human, right. So, should a.i. be superhuman? Join us for a lively discussion at the Thursday Gathering.
