"Who are the Slaves Among Us?" Monique Villa In Conversation with Experts of Modern Slavery
To celebrate the launch of ‘Slaves Among Us’, a book by Monique Villa, the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights and Oxford Business and Human Rights Research Network hosted a panel of experts in conversation about what modern slavery means and how to identify the slaves that live among us.

Rethinking Wagner's 'Leitmotifs': An introduction to the Lohengrin Time Machine
Written and Presented by Laurence Dreyfus (Faculty of Music, University of Oxford) in association with Oxford e-Research Centre Kevin Page David Lewis Professor Laurence Dreyfus describes how Wagner's way of setting and altering motifs over the course of his 1848 opera, Lohengrin, reflects and enhances the drama. This video (and an essay also by Prof. Dreyfus) is supported by a digital companion – the Lohengrin TimeMachine – where you can explore how one motif, the Frageverbot (Forbidden Question) changes over the course of the opera.

Sir Roger Penrose - AI, Consciousness, Computation, and Physical Law
Sir Roger Penrose Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford A common scientific view is that the actions of a human brain could, in principle, be simulated by appropriate computation, and even that it may not be too far into the future before computers become so powerful that they will be able to exceed the mental capabilities of any human being. However, by using examples from chess and mathematics, I argue, that the quality of conscious understanding is something essentially distinct from computation. Nevertheless, I maintain that the action of a conscious brain is the product of physical laws, whence consciousness itself must result from physical processes of some kind. Yet physical actions, over a huge range, can be simulated very precisely by computational techniques, as is exemplified by the LIGO gravitational wave detectors confirming precise calculations, within Einstein’s general relativity theory, of signals from black-hole encounters in distant galaxies. Despite this, I argue that there is a profound gap in our understanding of how Einstein’s theory affects quantum systems, and that there is reason to believe that the events termed “collapse of the wave-function” take place objectively (gravitational OR), in a way that defies computation, yet should be observable in certain experiments. It is argued that each such event is accompanied by a moment of “proto-consciousness”, and that actual consciousness is the result of vast numbers of such events, orchestrated in an appropriate way so as to provide an actual conscious experience (Orch-OR).
Distinguished Lecture 2018: Former President of Colombia and Nobel Peace Laureate Juan Manuel Santos
Former President of Colombia and Nobel Peace Laureate Juan Manuel Santos' talk was on on "Reducing Poverty and Building Peace in Colombia: Inextricably Linked Processes", focusing on the role of robust leadership in dealing with these two highly complex and interlinked issues. Former President Santos is a distinguished public figure and an influential leader, well known for his role in the recent Colombian peace process. During his term in office, which has just closed, President Santos took leadership in global efforts to reduce multidimensional poverty, including co-founding the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network (MPPN) in 2013, a South-South initiative of policy-makers working to fight poverty in all its forms and dimensions.
