I made an announcement about the AISB Loebner Prize on 26 June 2017, which was reported on Access AI, in an article called You've still got time to enter the most prestigious Turing Test.
I was invited to write a scripted for a staged debate on the use of fully autonomous weapons in war, which I performed at the Science Museum Lates on 31 May 2017 with Jessica Ussher. My preliminary list of arguments for and against the use of fully autonomous weapons in war is on this site.

My paper, co-authored with J. Mark Bishop and Elva J. H. Robinson Local Termination Criteria for Stochastic Diffusion Search: A Comparison with the Behaviour of Ant Nest-Site Selection was published by Springer, which I also presented at CSDMO2016, a special session of ICCCI2016.
