Rescheduled from 25th February.

Professor Andrew Thompson, Nuffield College, University of Oxford - It is widely argued that the ‘4th Industrial Revolution’ will be fundamentally different from earlier industrial revolutions in ‘scope, complexity and scale’. What challenges will the digital age and proliferation of information, processed at ever greater speeds, pose to the future of society, the health of democracy, the distribution of power economically, and to our quintessential human capacities of self-reflection, empathy and compassion? This lecture examines the crucial role of research in the arts and humanities as we head into, and try to make sense of, the ‘4th Industrial Revolution’.
