Alan Turing Lecture 2024 'AI and Political Responsibility

Speaker: Professor Jude Browne

Hybrid Event recorded on 3 May 2024

The Alan Turing Lecture, launched in 2017, is given by a leading authority from a key discipline on which Turing's work has had greatest impact. This event has become a highlight in the intellectual and social calendar of the College.

AI and Political Responsibility Not a day goes by without a new story on the threats of increasingly clever machines that surpass human capability, comprehension and control. How can we respond? What should we do politically? Jude Browne questions who has political responsibility for the structural impacts of these technologies and how we might think about preparing for the far-reaching societal changes they are set to bring.

Professor Jude Browne is a Professorial Fellow of King’s College, the Head of the Department of Politics and International Studies at Cambridge and the Jessica and Peter Frankopan Director of the University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies. She is also Associate Fellow of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence. Her current research focuses on political responsibility, the public interest, feminist theory and structural injustice and the impact of technology on society. Her lecture will draw on her forthcoming book Political Responsibility and Tech Governance: AI, Repro-tech and Structural Injustice (Cambridge University Press).
