Julian Johnson-Munday, head at Culford School, spoke to students and parents on Saturday, May 26, and former MP Rosie Barnes also addressed the audience as guest of honour.

Mr Johnson-Munday said: “A future dominated by artificial intelligence means that we have to urgently consider what intelligence even is.

“Look in the art and DT departments today and tell me where one subject begins and the other ends.

“Paint, or watch someone else painting, in virtual reality and tell me where art ends and computing begins.

“Indeed, as we look towards the neuro-linguistic programming of artificial intelligences, tell me where the study of language ends and mathematics begins.”

He added: “We have to be brave enough to insist upon an education that reveals to children what it truly means to be human – not one that fits them to become the infantilised adjuncts of AI and robotics.”

The annual Opera and Roots in the Park events will return to Culford School on June 16-17 and the school will break for summer on Friday, July 5, and return on Thursday, September 6.
