We've arranged an event in London to coincide with the publication of Genesis Machines. This will take the form of a panel discussion at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), and is being organised in association with the Royal Institution.
I'm delighted to say that our publicist, Annabel Huxley, has succeeded in attracting a world-class line-up (and me!). The panel will comprise:
- Professor Stephen Emmott, Director of the External Research Office at Microsoft Research, Cambridge
- Oliver Morton, news editor at Nature and author of Mapping Mars
The event will be chaired by the scientist, writer and broadcaster Vivienne Parry, whose previous work includes presenting Tomorrow's World and the Aventis Prize-shortlisted book The Truth About Hormones.
It promises to be an enjoyable evening, hopefully informative and perhaps even a little provocative. Full details are below, and I'll look forward to maybe meeting you there.
