A series of invited lectures and follow-up discussion seminars for UK students and the public at which selected experts will offer diverse views of artificial intelligence in the context of different disciplines (e.g. art, law, ethics, security, philosophy). The course is open to all those interested in the topic of AI in a wider context, who are invited toparticipate in the different parts of the course according to their discretion and interest (enrollment for the course is not necessary, just come). Lectures by invited guests will alternate with discussion seminars for attendees interested in getting deeper into the issues.
