Battle of Ideas at Foyles: Droning on? Life in the Internet of Things

Tuesday 30th September 2014 6:30pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Automation plays an increasingly significant role in our daily lives. Within a few years, the hotly tipped 'Internet of Things' promises to integrate even everyday household appliances into autonomous networks, with many hoping it will significantly reduce energy and food wastage among other benefits. Advances in drone technology and 'smart' robots capable of performing highly-skilled jobs once regarded as the sole preserve of human workers has led some to predict that a 'Second Machine Age' could be a reality within a generation. Join us to discuss the changing relationship between human and machine in what is predicted to be a fully networked future.

Tickets: £7.50 (£5 concs.), available from www.battleofideas.org.uk
