Science Museum Lates explores autonomous technology

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 28th Aug 2019

With everything from deep-sea conservation to getting a cheeky take-away being reimagined with some form of automation, it’s now clearer than ever that artificial intelligence is gaining an ever-increasing presence in our lives.

At the Science Museum’s August Lates, visitors can catch a unique glimpse into the AI-driven tech that could shape the habits, behaviour and society of tomorrow with an exciting programme featuring everything from VR simulations to workshops in machine-learning.

Take part in active research into drone technology and discuss the ethical questions around autonomous tech, or race against the machine with Formula E experts, Roborace, in a series of interactive activities delving into the not-so-distant future of driverless motor racing.

Join the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering in a museum-wide scavenger hunt, print your own driverless-themed poster, and come face-to-face with a scale model of Boaty McBoatface at the title exhibition, Driverless: Who is in control?

Plus, join Angela Saini and a panel of experts at our IMAX theatre as they discuss the themes of Saini’s new book ‘Superior: The Return of Race Science’ surrounding the disturbing re-emergence of scientific research into racial differences.

All this and much more, including the opportunity to see our free Top Secret exhibition after hours and the out-of-this-world VR experience, Space Descent VR with Tim Peake, which traces an astronaut’s journey back from the International Space Station.

Cost: Free of Charge
