Martin will speak about the state of the art in robots and AI and what this tells us about the near term future that our children and grandchildren will live in. Will the imminent arrival of AI powered self-driving vehicles mean redundancies for truck and taxi drivers? What will these people do next? Martin will also show how robots and AI are already commonplace, working in shops, restaurants and distribution centres.
