What is our digital future? iHUMAN and an AI Strategy for Scotland

Pioneering documentary feature film iHUMAN takes us deep inside the artificial intelligence (AI) industry and to the outer limits of what this technology can achieve. By whose code are we really living?

As iHUMAN is released in UK cinemas, join high-level experts in arts and policy for a chance to see exclusive film clips and think about the rising role of AI in society and the interconnectedness of policy development.

In the framework of International Human Rights Day, the event will explore what it means to be human in an AI age, and how we can safeguard the best of AI innovation while also protecting our fundamental human rights, values and identity.

It will also specifically address Scotland’s forthcoming national AI strategy, particularly exploring how the current proposals could better address issues of racial diversity and implicit bias.

Featuring insight from:

Tonje Hessen Schei, iHUMAN Film Director
Shannon Vallor, Edinburgh Futures Institute
Gillian Docherty, The Data Lab
Professor Karen Yeung, Birmingham University

With other speakers to be announced soon!

This event is co-hosted by Open Rights Group Scotland and Think-Film Impact Production.
