What comes to mind first when you think of artificial intelligence (AI)? Perhaps self-driving cars or maybe Netflix recommendations. AI takes many forms, but one thing is sure, it has the potential to transform almost all the areas of society: supporting cancer diagnostics, predicting droughts and hurricanes, and even driving the Mars rovers. Yet, it isn’t rocket science and is more accessible than you think. Who knows, in the coming years, you may even leverage AI yourself to change the world.

AI will play a key role in all areas of science, but also in other areas; it already permeates all levels of society: police, justice, banks, online shopping, social networks. It is no exaggeration to say that algorithms can make or break democracies, and yet, we still underestimate how they influence our lives. Opening the black box, and understanding a bit better what AI is and how it works, is an essential step towards a more ethical and responsible digital society.

This talk is most suitable for those aged 16+ years with respect to the algorithmic/maths level needed, but younger children are welcome, too.

The talk will run twice at: 5–6pm and 6:30–7:30pm.

Booking/Registration is: RECOMMENDED
