Book Club – November ‘15

We chose a Sci-Fi classic for this month’s book club – Isaac Asimov’s ‘I, Robot’.

Although it’s now over 50 years since some of the stories were published, they still gave us plenty of material to stimulate our discussions.  We covered topics such as the economic effects of increasing automation, the ethics of military robots and how, in reality, the development of AI is likely to progress.

We managed to keep reasonably on-topic for most of the evening, even if at one point we ended up debating why vegetarians felt the need for meat substitutes!
