The Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence is pleased to announce the establishment of the annual Margaret Boden Lecture.
The lecture series is named after a distinguished Cambridge alumna, Professor Margaret A. Boden, OBE ScD FBA. Professor Boden is Research Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of Sussex, where she led the development of the world’s first academic programme in cognitive science. Her fundamentally interdisciplinary work integrates the fields of psychology and philosophy with artificial intelligence and computer science. She is the author of influential works such as the two-volume Mind as Machine (2006), which has been hailed as the definitive history of cognitive science, and has been a leading voice in advocating ethical and responsible use of AI.
We are delighted to announce that the inaugural Margaret Boden Lecture will be given by Professor Boden herself on Tuesday 5 June 2018 at 5:30pm at the Cambridge Union. She will be speaking on “The Future of Intelligence: What Matters?”. Her talk, which also marks the start of CFI’s Varieties of Mind conference, will be open to the public.
