Dr Konstantino Glino's session looks at so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution and what it means to live in a world increasingly run on artificial intelligence (AI), one where the digital and the physical merge. Most policymakers agree on the benefits, from fuelling economic growth to better health services and safer transportation, as well as the challenges it poses, for example, in terms of employment, privacy and security. But there is no broad agreement as yet on the need to regulate or enforce codes of conduct or ethics for AI.
This is the sixth in a series of 'Politics and IR Brown Bag Lunch Sessions' organised by the Centre on Asia and Globalisation. Launched in Academic Year 2017/18, the new initiative aims to provide a more casual and intimate setting for CAG faculty members to share their nascent research ideas on international relations over lunch, as well as engaging in unconstrained and thought-provoking discussion.
