Description

Join ABC Canberra mornings presenter and science buff, Adam Shirley, and a panel University of Canberra experts for a casual conversation on ‘The Human Cost of Robots’.
The line between humans and technology is blurring. We are creating machines that are increasingly humanlike, while embracing technology into our bodies and lives making us more like the machines we build. As technology creators, the questions we ask and the choices we make will shape our future.
What will that future be? Are we obsolete in a time of robots? Can robots create art? If a robot commits a crime, who is responsible? How can robots help our society? Where do art and robots meet? Join host Adam Shirley (ABC Canberra) for a futuristic UnCover Event as we speak to a roboticist Dr Damith Herath, robotics in art specialist, Dr Elizabeth Jocum, a journalist of the digital age, Dr Caroline Fisher and a lawyer examining the legal ramifications of AI, Dr Bruce Baer Arnold.
