Challenges in Robotics – Why Robots won’t be Taking Over the World Just Yet
The popular press is full of dire predictions that robotics and AI technology are advancing at such a pace that humans will shortly be subservient to machines, that they will steal our jobs, become our masters and turn us into slaves. A recent survey concluded that two out of five adults are worried robots will steal their jobs. The hype is enormous, but the reality is different and more nuanced, and as this talk will show, there are still massive challenges that need to be solved before robots will outperform humans even in quite simple tasks. So, come along for some robot relief with Martin McGinnity - or at least a good discussion about the shape of things 25 years from now.

    What we're about

    Hosted by the British Science Association and CAMRA, Nottingham SciBar is a monthly event where a research scientist will present a short introduction to their work and how it affects all of us. This is followed by a friendly discussion interspersed with regular beer breaks. If you're interested in science, and enjoy real ale pubs then we'd love for you to come along and enjoy an evening's entertainment that stimulates those grey cells!
