Manawatu U3A Autumn Seminar Series May 2017.

Speaker: Dr. Sy Taffel, Lecturer in Media Studies, Massey University

From writing poetry to driving cars, a diverse range of activities that involve complex decisionmaking
are now beginning to be undertaken by ‘intelligent’ machines with little or no direct human oversight. How might these technological changes alter social, political and economic systems? What kinds of future societies do these developments gesture towards? How might these changes challenge
our understanding of intelligence, human creativity and what it means to be human?
