Welcome to Future Debates, a series of events supported by the British Science Association.

These events are part of our work to make science a fundamental part of British society and culture. We want to empower many more people – not just scientists – to constructively engage in debates over the applications and implications of science in their lives, their local economy and the UK’s future.

Recent advances in areas such as artificial intelligence, machine vision and physical movement technologies have meant robotic and autonomous systems are developing at an ever-increasing rate.

This advancement is taking these technologies into new fields and applications, bringing with them a vast number of new challenges, opportunities and questions. This event will bring together a panel of experts to attempt to answer such questions and discuss the immense impact of these technologies on our society.
