As artificial intelligence continues to infiltrate our everyday lives, we take time to reflect on how exactly it is impacting the most human of characteristics – creativity.

This panel discussion, programmed to coincide with our major summer exhibition AI: More than Human, features artists, academics and thinkers at the forefront of the AI movement.

The event will feature contributions from MIT media lab researcher, activist and founder of the Algorithmic Justice League, Joy Buolamwini, Senior fellow at the Future of Human Institute at Oxford University, Anders Sandberg, artist and researcher, Anna Ridler, and Research Fellow at Sheffield Robotics, Michael Szollosy. The debate will be hosted and chaired by BBC Radio 3’s Matthew Sweet.

Tickets to this event include entry to AI: More than Human.
Entry to the exhibition can be accessed at anytime, but is not guaranteed at busy times.

This event is being recorded for broadcast by BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking programme and broadcast at 10pm on Tuesday June 4th. It is also available as a BBC Arts&Ideas podcast to download from BBC Sounds. It will be part of a playlist of programmes called Free Thinking the Future.
