    Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - public lecture/debate/seminar

    Description

    Join us to explore the impact of the Internet, digital technology and social media on human memory. From Google and GPS to lifelogging services, we are outsourcing more and more cognitive faculties. But are we really becoming shallower, lazier, more stupid? Join novelist Adam Roberts (New Model Army), Stacey Pitsillides (Digital Death), Wendy Moncur (LivingDigital, University of Dundee) and Elad Ben Elul (The Album People) to debate one of the most important issues facing us in the 21st Century. Programmed in partnership with The Memory Network.
