The last of five lectures given by Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics of Reading University. In it, he provides an overview of the four previous lectures, followed by a look at what the technological future holds. He talks about whether it will ever be possible to build machines that are more intelligent than or as creative as humans. He also questions whether, with their ability to compute and act on information too complex for the human brain to process, robots could ever pose a threat to their human creators.
