What can humans do that machines will not soon be doing too? In this event, author Tom Chatfield explains why he believes this is the wrong question to ask - and we should look instead at what it is that humans love and demand to do, and where the unique value of human experience lies in a digital age. Tom's recent "Live This Book!" (Penguin) is a print-only journal exploring everyday habits, interactions and cognition - and he will explain why he turned to pen and paper to address the future of human-machine interactions, and what it means to thrive in a digital age.
