The festival team are also thrilled to announce that astrophysicist Dr Jen Gupta and neuroscientist Dr Hannah Critchlow will be presenting the robot-themed event.
Tomorrow’s World was the show that introduced the nation to mobile phones and laser eye surgery—and now it has returned as a new live and digital interactive vision of the future.
With the help of special guest experts, the audience at the museum and around the world online at bbc.co.uk/tomorrowsworld and Facebook Live, the presenters will be asking—how will robots impact our lives and shape our future?
The event will take place at the Museum of Science and Industry on Monday 23 October, from 19.00 to 20.30.
Tickets will be randomly allocated by ballot, and on the night seats given on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will remain open until 10.00 on Monday 9 October 2017. No applications will be accepted after this date and time.
As part of the Science Museum Group, the Museum of Science and Industry is a partner with Tomorrow's World, which relaunched this year with a brand new digital platform and a quest to find the nation's greatest invention.
