Description

Three top academics, three dangerous ideas and your host, comedian Susan Morrison. Tonight Dr Catherine Pennington (The University of Edinburgh) wants to cure dementia, or at least slow it down. Dr Imad Faruque (Heriot-Watt University) wants to know why he can’t be in two places at once like the quantum particles he’s made of. And Paola Ruffo (Heriot-Watt University) explores the more human side to AI where computers are learning to write and translate literature! But can they really compete with human creativity?
