Melbourne International Comedy Debate: Robots Do It Better
11 April, 2016
Engineers without Borders (Uni of Adelaide)
Come and see some of Australian’s finest minds and top comedians battle it out to decide whether or not biology or technology will succeed in this violent struggle between man and machine. No robots will be included in the debating panel. Call bias all you want.
Our brilliant debaters include:
Sarah Jones- Ventriloquist
Tom Lang, science/comedy thing
Nicholas J. Johnson
All precariously held together by your overwhelmed and underqualified MC, Alanta Colley
The human brain might be the most sophisticated computer on earth, but how long will it hold this accolade? Do robots do it better? Have we rendered ourselves obsolete? Wasn’t that the point all along? Is our future one with more time for leisure and philosophy while robots undertake the life’s dull chores, or will we be enslaved by our superior creation? Did Darwin see this coming? And what of the soul? Come laugh in the face of our own demise as a species.
Funds raised from this event will support the work of Engineers Without Borders Australia.
