It's not a coincidence that patterns of connectivity in our brains are similar to the patterns of connectivity on the Web. The Web is not trying to replicate human intelligence, but it might be getting close because of the way that we, as humans, use it. How will it continue to evolve? Guest Director Wendy Hall leads this discussion about how society is shaping the Web as the Web is shaping society, with neuroscientist Uta Frith, social scientist Aleks Krotoski and Artificial Intelligence engineer Nigel Shadbolt. Joined on stage by Twitter chair Bill Thompson.
