Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas 2018
Debate, discussion and discourse at the Edinburgh Fringe
Dr Google Will See You Now!
Your supermarket knows when you’re pregnant; Google knows what medical conditions you have; Facebook could help your doctor diagnose you. What if Google sent a record of your search terms to your doctor to notify them of likely health conditions? What if Facebook sent an alert to midwives when pregnant ladies posted photos of them drinking alcohol or smoking? Join Mhairi Aitken (The University of Edinburgh) as she discusses how this information could be used, and have your own say on what should remain science fiction and what should become reality.
(The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas programme runs from 03-26 August 2018. Check out the full programme below!)
