Artificial Intelligence – A Brief History of Tomorrow

February 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

RSVP on Eventbrite to obtain your ticket:

AI has already made a global impact. Some individuals maintain a dystopian view on what the future of AI will look like, however, it cannot be ignored that AI is transforming lives; it’s empowering the visually impaired to read, it’s enabling doctors to reach larger numbers of patients and it’s completely transforming industries.

Join some of the world’s most forward-thinking minds and experts, as we explore AI from various perspectives to discuss the history, responsibility, operation and application. Talks will uncover where AI originated from, to where we are now, whilst distinguishing the responsibility of both the creator and user. We will also uncover user stories of how AI is being implemented today and predictions for the future.
