2021 BBC Reith Lecturer

Stuart Russell will deliver the 2021 Reith Lectures on the theme "Living with Artificial Intelligence". Lecture 1 entitled "The Biggest Event in Human History" was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 1 December 2021.[3]

The four lectures will examine what Russell will argue is the most profound change in human history as the world becomes increasingly reliant on super-powerful AI. Examining the impact of AI on jobs, military conflict and human behaviour, Russell will argue that our current approach to AI is wrong and that if we continue down this path, we will have less and less control over AI at the same time as it has an increasing impact on our lives. How can we ensure machines do the right thing? The lectures will suggest a way forward based on a new model for AI, one based on machines that learn about and defer to human preferences.

The series of lectures will be held in four locations across the UK: Newcastle, Edinburgh, Manchester and London and will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and the World Service as well as available on BBC Sounds. Accompanying the lectures, Adam Rutherford and Hannah Fry will explore the themes of the lectures in a complementary BBC Radio 4 series.

The lectures will be chaired by presenter, journalist and author, Anita Anand.[4]
