The media are agog with claims that recent advances in AI put artificial general intelligence (AGI) within reach.  Is this true? If so, is that a good thing? Alan Turing predicted that AGI would result in the machines taking control.  

Professor Russell will argue that Turing was right to express concern, but wrong to think that doom is inevitable.  Instead, we need to develop a new kind of AI that is provably beneficial to humans. Unfortunately, we are currently heading in the opposite direction.

Neil Leach from Venice University California will be introducing Professor Russell. Neil is an architect, curator and writer and will be giving specific examples of AI in architecture during his introduction. 

This annual event is a longstanding tradition in the Company's history, named after Lt Col Peter Milo, OBE who was the WCCA's first Clerk and Sword Bearer of the City of London.

A short Q & A and drinks reception will follow the presentation.

This lecture will be held at RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD
