Dr Will Slocombe explores some of the dominant trends in science fiction and considers how they relate to our expectations of the future.

More than just ‘Science Fiction’: what can stories teach us about Artificial Intelligence?

The prospect and reality of Artificial Intelligence has long fascinated creators of fictional worlds. But they are not ‘merely’ science fiction, so what might such representations actually reveal? In a whirlwind tour of examples of the technology, from literature, film, and computer games, Dr Will Slocombe explores some of the dominant trends at work in these representations and considers how they relate to our expectations of the future. Dr Will Slocombe, Senior Lecturer in the Department of English, will be joined by guest AI scientist, Dr Louise Dennis.

The lecture will be followed by a live Q&A session.

This lecture is the fifth and final event in the University of Liverpool’s 2021 Series of Public Lectures in the Arts on the theme of WORD – IMAGE – POWER.

Presented by the University of Liverpool School of the Arts
