A robot stole my job... How can you tell if a robot is going to steal your or your kid’s job? Will automation mean there isn’t enough work for everyone? Prof James Maclaurin looks at the shape of the future and how we might prepare for it.

Guest expert: Professor James Maclaurin

Professor James Maclaurin is a philosopher of science whose work has particularly focused on evolutionary biology, information, and computing. He has a wide interest in the possibilities of ‘applied philosophy’, applying the traditions of philosophical thought and argument to important political and social problems.

In particular, as co-director of the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Public Policy at Otago, he is playing a prominent role in nationwide debates over the ethical dimensions of technological change.

What is MindJam?
Tickle your brain as we tackle the big issues in a series of informal conversations, stitched together by some of New Zealand’s leading thinkers, over a coffee and cake or wine and tapas at Yonder (14 Church St, Queenstown).

MindJam sessions are guided by guest experts, but it’s our questions, thoughts and discussions that make MindJam. Seats are free but limited, so please get your spot early, order your refreshments and be ready to join in. Friday night’s launch includes complimentary tapas.

Eventbrite registration is encouraged (search for Catalyst Trust Queenstown) so we have an idea on numbers, but it is first in, first served for seats on the night.

MindJam is a collaboration between Catalyst Trust and the University of Otago’s Division of Humanities.
