About the event

Recent advances in computation hardware, availability of large quantities of data, cheap cloud computing and high bandwidth connectivity have combined in recent years to drive massive advances in the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Once intractable problems such as speech and vision recognition and semi or fully autonomous vehicles have been largely solved in the last 5 years. AI is increasingly being used to improve and safeguard our health, to perform much of global share trading, to help us to choose, buy, sell and be approved for products and services, and to automate systems and processes to improve operational efficiencies.

What impact will AI have on your business and industry sector? Join us at this timely event where we will demystify AI, separate hype from reality and help you to begin to think through the implications for your own business.
