Advanced Artificial Intelligence - Motion to Take Note (24 Gor 2023)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, let me join the queue in congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Ravensdale, on his stellar career to date and his excellent speech. He will bring an enormous amount to your Lordships’ House, especially his depth of knowledge in the area we are discussing. ChatGPT and other forms of generative AI have taken the world by storm. I am a social scientist, but I have spent several years...

Wellbeing of Future Generations Bill [HL] - Second Reading (13 Maw 2020)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I also warmly congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Bird, on having got his Bill this far. It could be even bigger than the Big Issue, which you would think is big enough for most people—but not for him. Anyway, I much enjoyed his warm introduction. As noble Lords have said, we live in a world of quite dazzling change. For us, the future is here in the present in ways that were never...

Green Economy - Motion to Take Note (12 Maw 2020)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I join the queue of those congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Parminter, on introducing this debate so ably. Creating a green economy is an absolute exigency, and within a limited timescale too. The overwhelming reason is the trans- formation of global weather patterns, as other noble Lords have said. Put bluntly, human-induced climate change is an existential threat. People...

Mental Health: Unregulated Treatment - Question for Short Debate ( 2 Maw 2020)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Jolly, on introducing this debate so ably. We live in a world of dazzling change, in which the digital revolution and AI are among the major driving forces transforming our lives. This is new territory for all of us, but children and young adults are especially on the front line. The online world is almost wholly unregulated. Many traditional...

Algorithms: Public Sector Decision-making - Question for Short Debate (12 Chw 2020)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, as we have six minutes, let me also congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, on having introduced this debate so ably and say what an excellent and, if I might say so, affable chairman he was of the AI committee. AI and machine learning are on the front line of our lives wherever we look. The centre for disease control in Zhejiang province in China is deploying AI to analyse...

Climate Change - Motion to Take Note ( 6 Chw 2020)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, for the past few days I have been absorbed in the book A Farewell to Ice by Peter Wadhams, the head of the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge and one of the world’s leading authorities on the Arctic. The Arctic ice has crucial properties in stabilising global temperatures, since it reflects a significant proportion of solar radiation back into space, and it is simply...

Eating Disorders: Provision of Care - Question for Short Debate ( 4 Chw 2020)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Parminter, on having secured this debate and introducing it so ably. I start, somewhat improbably, in China—a part of the world currently in the news for reasons other than what I want to talk about. Only some four decades ago, 40 million people starved to death in the country during Mao’s rule; far greater numbers suffered from pronounced...

Social Mobility - Question for Short Debate (29 Ion 2020)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I failed my A-levels too, but somehow I struggled into your Lordships’ House. The Sutton Trust’s manifesto is admirable and I fully endorse its proposals. However, the changes sweeping through the economy are just huge. At this point, the Government must face up to three hard truths and I should like the Minister to comment on these. Hard truth one: as the guru of mobility...

Brexit: European Investment Bank (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Gor 2019)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I also begin by congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Falkner, on having chaired our committee so effectively and introduced this debate so tellingly. I also thank everyone else involved in the production of this excellent report. I hope noble Lords will forgive me if I take a lateral approach to these issues. Today is a very notable day: the 50th anniversary of the launch of the...

Policy-making: Future Generations’ Interests - Motion to Take Note (20 Meh 2019)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Bird, on having secured this debate and on his characteristically forceful introduction. My approach is a bit more macrocosmic than his, but I hope that it slots in. The American satirist Yogi Berra once said: “The future ain’t what it used to be”. It was intended as a flippant remark, but it actually pinpoints crucial aspects of our society...

Renewable Energy - Question for Short Debate ( 5 Meh 2019)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Giddins, listed on the speakers’ list was unable to get here this evening, so I, the noble Lord, Lord Giddens, am here in his stead. I say that only for the integrity of Hansard. I begin by congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Cameron, on securing this debate and introducing it so accurately and passionately. I certainly endorse that passion and his combative...

UK Foreign Policy in a Shifting World Order (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Mai 2019)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in saying that this is a terrific report, and I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Howell, and everyone else involved in producing it. The noble Lord has received lots of plaudits in the debate tonight, and they are well deserved. The report offers an acute account of the huge dilemmas facing the UK in foreign policy, and it analyses very well the seismic...

Mental Health of Children and Young Adults - Motion to Take Note (16 Mai 2019)

Lord Giddens: In that case, my Lords, I will start. Let me begin by congratulating my noble friend Lady Royall on having secured this debate and on introducing it so ably. I am a bit far up the list for this, but my subject is a deeply perturbing one. I want to offer some comments on suicide and suicidal behaviour in relation to the mental health of children and young people. Is there anything more tragic?...

Artificial Intelligence (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Tach 2018)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, it is hard speaking this far down the list, because I have made all these notes on my own notes and I am not sure I understand them any more, if I could understand them in the first place. Anyhow, like others, I begin by congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, on his masterful chairmanship. I also thank our advisers. This was a terrific committee to be on, and I learned a...

Artificial Intelligence - Statement (26 Ebr 2018)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, my noble friend stole my thunder a bit. In the way in which AI is described here, it sounds very benign. It is indeed important to innovation in the future, but it is stuffed with risks and dangers wherever you look, from labour markets to weaponry and all sorts of other areas. It is a huge mix of advantages and massive problems. I would like at least some comment on how the...

NHS: Cancer Treatments - Question for Short Debate (25 Ion 2018)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, this has been a magical debate. I cannot remember anything quite like it in all my time in your Lordships’ House and I believe it will have a profound effect. I express my great admiration for my noble friend Lady Jowell: for her steely determination, her compassion and her humanity for other people. This debate will be seen in many different countries. Quite a few years ago, the...

Education and Society - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Rha 2017)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I have spent much of my life in public speaking, in a university context. If you were lucky or you did a good job, students would look up at you. Recently, that has all changed. Now, you look at a lecture audience and half of them are looking down at their devices. I noticed that the most reverend Primate was, if I can put it this way, fiddling with his iPhone quite a bit in the...

Sierra Leone: Ebola - Question for Short Debate (30 Hyd 2017)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I begin by expressing my admiration for the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, for her continuing dedication to and involvement in the future of Sierra Leone in the wake of this disaster. Building on what she said, four minutes is not long to speak about an epidemic that once caused headlines and panic around the world. If the same scenario had occurred in a developed country, one has to...

Future of Work - Motion to Take Note (12 Hyd 2017)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Knight on having secured this debate, on introducing it so ably and on his mention of me. Perhaps I ought to say “Sit down at the back there and shut up”, as I used to in Cambridge. It was a very absorbing speech. I want to discuss the impact of the digital revolution on the future of work. To me, the digital revolution is not technology;...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Med 2017)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Lane-Fox, on her excellent opening speech and her extraordinary career so far. Apropos of what the noble Lord, Lord Sugar, said, I note that quite a few noble Lords were looking at their devices while he was speaking, and he has so far looked at his device three times since he finished speaking. Do we need improved...
