Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas

I'll be appearing at the Fringe in the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas, 12.20-13.20 Monday 5 August and 12.20-13.20 Saturday 17 August, at Stand 5. (The 5 August show is joint with Matthew Knight of the National Museums of Scotland.)

Here's the brief summary:

Chatbots like ChatGPT and Google's Gemini dominate the news. But the answers they give are, literally, bullshit. Historically, artificial intelligence has two strands. One is machine learning, which powers ChatGPT and art-bots like Midjourney, and which threatens to steal the work of writers and artists and put some of us out of work. The other is the 2,000-year-old discipline of logic. Professor Philip Wadler (The University of Edinburgh) takes you on a tour of the risks and promises of these two strands, and explores how they may work better together.
I'm looking forward to the audience interaction. Everyone should laugh and learn something. Do come!
