Rob Miles (Science Communicator )
The word “Robot” was first used in a Sci-Fi play about mass produced workers who staged a rebellion resulting in the extinction of the human race. Ever-since, depictions of a robo-apocalypse have been portrayed countless times in pop-culture, from the West-End shows to big screen blockbusters. But, should we fear robotic creations?

Join Computer Scientist Rob Miles as he explains how robots are affecting our lives, looks into the more insidious technological advancements of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and attempts to work out which robots we should be the most afraid of.
