The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas
Thursday 15 April 2021
Show starts 8pm | FREE SHOW
Take a couple of top academics, some dangerous ideas, add one comedian and it’s the force of nature that is the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI).
Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison, and now in its ninth year, CODI is sixty minutes of rapid-fire research from some of the finest minds in the country.
CODI is curated by the University of Edinburgh as part of Beltane Public Engagement Network and produced by Fair Pley. This live stream compilation format includes a live Q&A through the audience chat box function.
Watch Out For Kangaroos!
AI might diagnose your health condition or determine your visa application, but what are the limits around how AI should - and should not - be used? Dr Mhairi Aitken (The Alan Turing Institute) believes only kangaroos can answer that question.
Size doesn't matter (and I mean it this time)
The data says we need more data. A middle-aged white British man will also suffer if AI ignores data from women and ethnic minority groups! Professor Ana Basiri (University of Glasgow) argues for the importance of democratising and representativeness of data.
Picking friends that influence people
Heard of Cambridge Analytica? Prof. Jon Crowcroft (University of Cambridge) did work that they based their political campaign advice on. He thinks whoever paid them all that money might as well have thrown it down the loo and may have done everyone a service!
This event is supported by the Alan Turing Institute Special Interest Group on Facilitating Responsible Participation in Data Science and a UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Future Leaders Fellowship.
This show is LIVE from a closed set at The Stand Edinburgh.
