The Food for Thought Public Lecture Series (FFT) is celebrating 20 years!!

This season, we will be looking at the fast-growing and fascinating world of artificial intelligence - AI – exploring notions of AI and its implications for human activity and identity.

Our special guests will explore the definition of Artificial Intelligence, how do we recognize an intelligent machine, as well as the role AI in food production, literature, agriculture, human health, ethics and law.
