Synopsis

The AGM is an important meeting in the Branch calendar and is a formal opportunity for Branch BCS members to review the past year and influence and shape what we do in the future; it’s an opportunity for anyone to get involved.

Following convention the AGM will precede a presentation which for this year the Branch Committee will host a debate on the use of algorithms in decision making; Are algorithms good for society?

During the debate, we will use as a reference, the recent use of algorithms in determining this year’s student A-Level and GCSE subject grades. There will be a team who will present on the For argument and a team who will present on the Against argument.

Delegates will be invited to listen to the debate and raise questions for the debating teams to answer before being asked to vote for the team that provides you with the most convincing argument.

Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.
