About the event

Some very well qualified people believe that artificial intelligence poses a potential extinction risk for humanity. Others, equally well qualified, see the possibility of a vast and beneficial increase in human knowledge and its deployment in saving lives, educating our children and improving our society. We aim to raise and debate the critical issues in an agenda driven by the questions that we as villagers ask ourselves.
