Artificial Intelligence


From self-driving cars to facial recognition, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming an integral part of society. In 2020, AI was an important tool in the fight against Covid-19, allowing for rapid data analysis during the development of the vaccine.

Looking forward, those working in AI have the potential to play a key role in addressing a wide range of issues in society, such as tackling loneliness in older adults, improving wildlife conservation and eliminating human bias and discrimination.

These speakers share their insights on the developments and future of AI, and the impact this could have on society and the world.
