Professor Martin Rees: The World in 2050 and beyond

Speaker: Professor Martin Rees

We can venture two fairly firm predictions about the next few decades; the world will get hotter, and global populations will rise. But we can’t predict the changing political backdrop, nor the speed and direction of technological advance (in biological sciences, artificial Intelligence and in space). There are reasons for great hopes, but also great fears.

Professor Martin Rees, Lord Rees of Ludlow OM FRS, Patron of U3AC, Astronomer Royal, Past President of the Royal Society
