We are the robots

I was walking past Conway Hall the other lunchtime and saw this poster for a brilliantly named talk in a couple of weeks time by computer expert Dirk Gorissen.

It’s on a Sunday lunchtime and it’s as cheap as chips and sounds well interesting if you like all that “will the robots take over the world?” and all of that sort of stuff.

The question on everybody’s lips is “Will they?” More on the talk here.

No man is an island

No man is an Island

Walking across the Millennium Bridge this morning I came across a box type thing upon The Thames with a model of a child on the top and what looked like a travelling bag at the bottom.

It was only later tonight while writing this post that I found out it’s an installation called Floating Dreams from South Korea’s Ik-Joong Kang and a memorial to the millions displaced during the Korean War of 1950-53. I imagine it has more impact at night but it’s still very impressive by day. Around until Friday 30th September and well worth seeing. More details hereP
