Many researchers now seriously consider the possibility that computers will show intelligence equal to our own within a few decades – with profound implications for us all. How will we communicate with them, and they with us? Will they achieve human-like sentience and affective states as well as human-like cleverness? Will natural and artificial intelligence come to co-operate smoothly or are we heading for uneasy coexistence? The CETC seminar brings together experts in machine learning and emerging AI applications for a glimpse of the no longer so distant future.

Prof José Hernández-Orallo, Technical University of Valencia, currently Leverhulme Centre, Cambridge
'The Measure of All Minds'
His academic and research activities have spanned several areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science and cognitive science. He has published five books and about two hundred journal articles and conference papers on these topics. His research in the area of machine intelligence evaluation has been covered by The Economist, New Scientist, BBC News or Nature. His most recent book addresses an integrated view of the evaluation of natural and artificial intelligence.
