Next Tuesday I’ll be giving a brief talk on machine consciousness prior to a screening of the film Ex Machina, as part of the Brighton Digital Festival. Sackler colleagues Keisuke Suzuki and David Schwartzman will be giving consciousness-illuminating VR demos involving our Nao robots as well. The event is being organised in conjunction with the British Science Association. More info at http://theoldmarket.com/shows/toms-film-club-ex_machina-2015/
Update, 4 October 2017:
Here are some photos of the event, courtesy of Amber John. As you can see, the title I settled on was “Turing Tests and Machine Consciousness”.
