- To Live in Peace (with smart machines)
The internet was meant to set us free. Tech has radically changed the way we live our lives. But have we unwittingly handed too much away to shadowy powers behind a wall of code, all manipulated by a handful of Silicon Valley utopians, ad men, and venture capitalists? And what does that mean for democracy, our delicately balanced system of government that was created long before big data, total information and artificial intelligence? Jamie Bartlett will be on hand to raise some bold question around this, the subject of his latest book The People Vs Tech, an enthralling account of how our fragile political system is being threatened by the digital revolution.
We all know good friends matter, but did we realise quite how much? Author and journalist Kate Leaver’s book The Friendship Cure – is a rousing, thought-provoking manifesto for reconnecting with your actual friends – and there are incredible reasons to do as she says. Kate’s research explains and documents exactly how much your health, happiness and even sanity could depend on your relationships with your friends. What a great excuse to bring your mates along!
Mark Miodownik MBE will make the surprising case for liquids being one of the things that matter most. The NYT Bestselling author of Stuff Matters, former Head of the Materials Research Group at King’s College London and Faraday Prize winning materials scientist believes a proper grasp of materials science – particularly liquid – might be in all our interests. In fact it might even help us avoid a global human catastrophe, and who are we to argue with a man who Bill Gates described as a ‘great talent.’ Mark is at Berwins Salon North to present his research in to liquids, or as he describes them The Delightful and Dangerous Substances That Flow Through Our Lives.
