Duration: 1:44:14 | Added: 08 Jan 2019
In the final episode of our series, we’re looking back at the themes we’ve discussed so far, and forward into the likely development of AI.

Professor Peter Millican will be joined by Professor Gil McVean, to further investigate how big data is transforming healthcare, by Dr Sandra Wachter, to discuss her recent work on the need for a legal framework around AI, and also by Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt on where the field of artificial intelligence research has come from, and where it’s going. To conclude, Peter will be sharing some of his views on where humanity is heading with AI, when you’ll also hear from his final guest, Azeem Azhar, host of the Exponential View podcast. Futuremakers will be taking a short break now, but we’ll be back with series two in the new year, when we’ll be taking on another of society’s grand challenges: building a sustainable future. Before then we’ll also be publishing a special one-off episode on Quantum Computing, and the global opportunities, and risks, it could present.  To read more about some of the key themes in this episode, you can find Sandra Wachter’s recent papers -
