Founded in 1971, meeting monthly and still going strong, the B.S.F.G. is a non-profit-making organisation that provides an informal atmosphere in which SF fans can meet one another and professionals in the field. You can find out more about us elsewhere on this website, meanwhile here are some details of our next two meetings.

9th May 2014
Dr Nick Hawes
Robots and Humans: When two societies meet
Nick Hawes
The recent history and potential future of two societies which are destined to become increasingly important in each other's lives: robots and humans. Due to demographic, technological and financial shifts in the western world, we have a number of problems which we must find solutions for. These range from how we care for the increasing proportion of elderly in our society, to decommissioning nuclear power plants. Robots provide solutions to these problems, but only if we can overcome some major scientific, and potentially some ethical, hurdles.

PLACE: Briar Rose Hotel, Bennett's Hill

TIME: Doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8pm start.

Admission : £4 non-members, £3 members
