OMS Square Reversed Line nobackground

The Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford has a seminar series this term, elements of which I think might be of interest to you. We are now webcasting these seminars live as they happen.




If you are unable to tune in to the live webcasts, each seminar will be available online afterwards. We will attempt to take questions via Twitter (@oxmartinschool or #humantech ) during the events, but I can’t guarantee that I will be able to field them all.


Entitled ‘Blurring the lines: the changing dynamics between man and machine’ the seminar series consists of the following events, taking place on Thursdays from 3.30pm-5pm:


6 Feb: mHealth: smartphones as saviours? Dr Fred Hersch and Dr Gari Clifford, Oxford Martin Programme on Healthcare Innovation


13 Feb: Artificial intelligence: examining the interface between brain and machine, Dr Anders Sandberg, Oxford Martin Programme on the Impacts of Future Technology


20 Feb: Mapping and identifying biodiversity: using new technology to understand our ecosystem Professor Kathy Willis, Dr Peter Long and Dr Timos Papadopoulos, Oxford Martin Biodiversity Institute
