The Sunday Times bestselling author of Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit and Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? Jeanette Winterson presents 12 Bytes: twelve eye-opening, mind-expanding, funny and provocative essays on the implications of artificial intelligence on our lives. Drawing on her years of thinking and reading about A.I., she looks to history, religion, myth, literature, the politics of race and gender, and computing science to help us understand the radical changes occurring in the way we live and love. Chaired by Alex Clark.
