This year, we asked you what you’d like to see as this year’s central theme, and you chose ‘The Humanities in Technology: What Kind of World Do We Want?’
Today, the accelerated pace of change means that technology impacts almost every aspect of human behaviour and everyday life. However, emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and robotics – though offering exciting developments – also present us with challenging questions about the type of society we really want, and these are the issues that this year’s Festival will explore.

Man vs Machine: The Role of AI Within the Digital Humanities
It’s not too late to view the free webinar “Man vs Machine: The Role of AI Within the Digital Humanities”!
To celebrate the 4th annual Wiley Humanities Festival, we brought together an expert panel from across the Humanities to discuss the role of technology and AI within the Humanities.
- What field of humanities would most benefit from AI algorithms?
- Can machines extract meaning from texts better than humans?
- And as AI starts interpreting text/data, what ethical concerns does it raise?
Don’t worry if you weren’t able to join – we’re pleased to announce that the webinar is now available on demand!
