Andrea Catherwood hosts a debate at the BBC Blue Room annual conference with Anne Longfield, Children’s Commissioner for England, Dr Nejra van Zalk, lecturer in psychology at Imperial College London, Hanna Adan, documentary maker and Neil Lawrence, DeepMind Professor of Machine Learning at the University of Cambridge.
