BCS Talk – Impact of Robots

January 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Title: IMPACT of ROBOTS
Where have all the good jobs gone?

Speakers:
Dr. Trevor Runcie (Agile Knowledge Management Ltd.
Prof. Peter Gray (Aberdeen University)

Location: Room N204(tbc), Sir Ian Wood Building, RGU, Garthdee, Aberdeen

Abstract:
We discuss the possibility that robots, including both hardware and
software technologies with access to huge data-stores, can now undercut
humans at most of the jobs people rely on. We discuss the recent book
The Rise of the Robots by Martin Ford, and look at some video clips of
him talking on YouTube, and of some of the technologies in action. We
also look at closely related work by Andrew McAfee (MIT).
