Free speech and non-human speakers

Mon 18 September 2017

Trinity Hall

We share our world with powerful and vocal non-human agents, such as corporations and, increasingly, AI-based systems of various kinds. Should such agents have a 'right' to free expression, analogous to that of human agents? If not, what restrictions are appropriate in a democratic society, and how should they be imposed?

Join philosophers Professor Rae Langton (Cambridge) and Professor Philip Pettit (Princeton), and political theorist Professor Toni Erskine (UNSW), for a conversation about these fascinating and timely questions.
