According to Stephen Hawking, this digital world in which we live is full of latent threats and foreboding.
“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race… It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”
It’s time to find out the truth.
Me, Myself and AI takes place at the BJSS office in central Glasgow on the evening of 22nd March 2018. At the event, key speakers will present a series of short talks, looking at different aspects of the evolution and practical applications of artificial intelligence in industry, the home and our personal lives.
Michael Phair, Client Engagement Manager at Be-IT, said: “AI is growing rapidly and we’re seeing a big increase in demand from our clients, so Be-IT is delighted to be partnering with BJSS and SPARCK to host this evening event with an array of first-class, expert speakers.”
Speakers at the event include:
Simon Sear – Founder of SPARCK – BJSS’ Digital Design Consultancy – Me, Myself and AI, talking about how AI is advancing, how the company has helped clients with digital transformation and the importance of user-centred design.
Carl Austin (tbc) – CTO at BJSS – AI – what might the (surprisingly near) future hold? delving into how AI will change lives for the better (and potentially the worse)… from driverless cars will reduce pollution and commute times, to ways in which AI can improve the quality of education and its wider effect on the whole of society.
John Davis – Head of Technology Consultancy at BJSS – Understanding AI. How an appreciation of what AI is, and what it isn’t, can help us understand how to harness its power.
Registration is at 6pm, with the talks starting at 6:30pm. There will be a break for pizza (and beer for anyone who is not driving!)
Tickets are free and can be booked online.
