As part of its Future Intelligence programme, analysing the impact of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence on the arts, the British Council interviews Laurence Scott, award-winning author of the books "The Four-Dimensional Human" and "Picnic Comma Lightning".

In this interview we will address the changes that the use of technology implies on our daily lives; the emergence of digital identities; the question of the representation of our bodies online (modified by the use of filters etc.) ; the social challenges of the digital world; and how to build a fair world in this fourth dimension.

Laurence Scott is an award-winning author of two books, The Four-Dimensional Human and Picnic Comma Lightning.  He writes a regular column on digital life for WIRED magazine and he is a presenter on BBC Radio 3’s Arts and Ideas programme, "Free Thinking". He has a doctorate in Comparative Literature from King’s College London and teaches writing and literature at New York University in London and on the University of North Carolina’s Honors Programme.
