56:21 Should We Trust Computers - Professor Martyn Thomas CBE
The Inaugural lecture of the newest Gresham Professorship, this post will focus on Information technology and is held by Martyn Thomas: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and... Computers and software have transformed the world in 67 years and the pace of change is still accelerating. The achievements have been extraordinary: we have the Web, Google and GPS - but we also have viruses, spam and cybercrime. What can we learn from past triumphs and disasters to help us decide about Big Data, driverless cars, artificial intelligence and life in silico? Might the future be built on sand, metaphorically as well as literally? The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and... Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 1,800 lectures free to access or download from the website.
