Andrew Moore (Carnegie Mellon University) will be in conversation with Nick Pearce (University of Bath) about the current horizon for artificial intelligence, robotics and Big Data and the social, economic and political implications of technological change. He will also discuss the challenges facing post-industrial cities, how universities can help cities succeed and the stresses of city and national politics in the age of Trump. He will draw upon the lessons he has learned from his experiences of working at Google, being at the cutting-edge of tech investment and contributing to the successful rebirth of Pittsburgh as a new tech centre.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers. Please arrive in plenty of time to take your seat as we will be admitting anyone waiting without a ticket into empty seats five minutes before start.
We endeavour to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct.
We sometimes film and photograph events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
