Everyday Life and the Digital Revolution
In this lecture, Anthony Elliott argues that much of what passes for conventional wisdom about the AI Revolution is either ill-considered or plain wrong. The reason? AI is not so much about the future, but is rather a revolution already well underway – albeit one which is unfolding in complex and uneven ways across the globe. From industrial robots to chatbots, and from driverless cars to military drones – AI is transforming all aspects of our lives, from the most intimate aspects of personal relationships to the changing nature of work, employment and unemployment.
Elliott focuses on the complex systems of AI - spanning intelligent machines, chatbots, advanced robotics, accelerating automation, big data - and their centrality to new forms of social interaction and interpersonal communication. In particular, the lecture examines AI in terms of the complex ways in which people communicate and talk with each other. Not only is machine-to-machine communication escalating today, but person-to-machine talk is also increasingly significant. Examining the rise of chatbots, softbots and virtual personal assistants, Elliott argues that AI is an increasingly integral part of how people live and work, now and in the future.
