Let's Talk Frankly

Monday 9 April

Commemorating the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Edinburgh Napier University’s Dr Sarah Artt hosts a cross-disciplinary panel including her partner in The Age of Frankenstein research project Dr Emily Alder, author Kate Horsley, and anthropologist and AI expert Dr Beth Singler from the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion at the University of Cambridge. Join them to dissect the cultural influence of this seminal work, and – as we inch closer to waking our own ‘nearly human’ AI creations – connect the novel’s themes of collective and individual responsibility to contemporary issues facing scientists working today.
