Robot Rights

We are delighted to announce two events on 6 March, organised and delivered by members of the Centre.

Danny Nicol will deliver his professorial lecture, entitled Doctor Who: A British Alien.

Secondly, Paresh Kathrani has organised Robot Rights, Now!?: A Conversation on the Possibility of Machine Rights. These events are consecutive, with Robot Rights Now immediately following Doctor Who: A British Alien and both take place in our Regent Street building, making it easy for visitors to slip between time and space and attend both.
