Digital Animals

Run time: 16:30 – 17:30
Film run time: 20 minutes 
Q&A: 30 minutes
From robotic milking machines to facial recognition of pigs’ emotions, digital technologies are increasingly used in animal farming. But they raise political and ethical questions about the kind of farming systems we want and how we should interact with animals.  
Join Hugh Williamson and Sarah Hartley from the University of Exeter for an exclusive screening of their new documentary Digital Animals made with independent filmmaker Tom Law.  
Take a seat and explore the hopes and concerns of a range of people involved in animal farming and how digital technologies may impact or improve agriculture, and the lives of animals. Stick around afterwards to hear from the research and filmmakers behind the film.
