Ian McEwan “Art and Science: The Impact of AI on Human Connection"

Jewish Public Library

Eddie Paul - info@jplmontreal.org - 514-345-2627

Ian McEwan will be talking about Science and Literature; about his writing methods, the various influences on him as a young writer, his early and parallel interests in science and literature, the nature of research and his time shadowing an eminent neurosurgeon, the coming impact of AI on society and human relations, and the writing of Machines Like Me. Ian will also be discussing whether a machine could ever be conscious in the way that we are. If we finally build a lifelike, plausible android, will it be a blessing or a nightmare?
