How the World Sees Intelligent Machines

With Kanta Dihal

People have been imagining intelligent machines for millennia, in ways that vary greatly across cultures. Yet as artificial intelligence begins to fulfil its potential, many of these perspectives are marginalised. In her lecture, Kanta Dihal will introduce such visions from across the globe, and what they can tell us now that AI is becoming a technological reality.
