Lecture abstract: AI has an exciting past, and an equally exciting future. Not least, it has taught us to appreciate the power, subtlety, and richness of human minds.

But some widespread expectations (and fears) won’t be fulfilled; the robots won’t take over.

Nevertheless, there are things that we should be worrying about, including the importation of AI into social situations deserving truly interpersonal contact.
