    Wonder in the age of AI: What is our (human) place in the future? (Chancellor's Lecture Series)

    Wonder in the age of AI: What is our (human) place in the future? (Chancellor's Lecture Series)

    From industrialisation in the 19th century to the breakthrough of computing in the 20th, we are now seeing the dawn of a new revolution in technology. Emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, machine learning, and autonomous systems are already offering new ways of doing with profound social, cultural and political implications. Artificial intelligence promises to revolutionise our lives, shape a new future and disrupt the world as we know it. But can we truly imagine all the ways that these emerging technologies will alter the human experience? Professor Genevieve Bell (Director of the 3A Institute, Florence Violet McKenzie Chair, and Distinguished Professor at the Australian National University) explores what the 21st century might bring (it’s not as scary as you think!).

    Medical assistance in dying (Chancellor's Lecture Series)

    Medical assistance in dying (Chancellor's Lecture Series)

    In February 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the prohibition against physician-assisted dying violated the constitutional right to "life, liberty, and security of the person". The government then established a panel to examine options for a legislative response to the ruling. The panel's final report, helped shape Canada’s legislation, legalising Medical Assistance in Dying. Swinburne University is pleased to welcome Professor Harvey Max Chochinov - Chair of the panel - to deliver this year's Chancellor's Lecture. He is an internationally renowned researcher in palliative care and issues related to dignity towards end-of-life. Professor Chochinov will share his unique personal experiences and perspectives regarding Canada’s entry into Medical Assistance in Dying and pose key questions related to dignity in end of life care. Recorded 23 November 2016
