DESCRIPTION

  • As Artificial Intelligence expands into the mainstream, from banking services to public health, is there more to worry about than losing jobs to robots?

  • While governments grapple with the scale and impact of fake news on social media, can they really hope to impose ethical limits on the spread of AI?

  • And when a technology fires our imaginations and fears all by itself, where does the fiction writer take it from there?

Novelist James Smythe has a history of taking on tech in his fiction, and his latest novel, I Still Dream, is no exception. On June 21 he is coming to the FT Books Café to tackle those challenging questions and more with the Financial Times' Innovations Editor John Thornhill.

Doors open at 6:00pm with welcome drinks at the the Financial Times’ headquarters in London. The conversation will begin at 6:30pm and it will be followed by a Q&A, book signing and drinks until 8:30pm.
