Driverless cars, machines that can learn for themselves and robots that work alongside humans. Artificial Intelligence is becoming a reality in our daily lives, never mind in the daily work we do for our clients.

The ground is shifting quickly in this field, with new AI developments announced on a seemingly weekly basis and commercial applications filtering through to market.

Join us and a panel of practitioners, as we explore the future of AI and the impact for the digital industries. Is there still scope for creative genius? How are brands and agencies getting involved? And where will the ground-breaking applications of this technology come from next?

Join us and a panel of experts in association with Wirehive as they discuss how Ai is changing their industries and what it means for privacy, freedom, data collection and automation.

This event will feature a short keynote from Pete Trainor, Chair of BIMA’s AI Think Tank, followed by a moderated panel discussion and audience Q&A.

Pete is an author, technologist, accidental polymath, mental health campaigner and co-founder of US Ai in London. He talks all over the world on creative & social technologies, data, artificial intelligence and the physiological & psychological effects on their audiences. Over the last three years, Pete has helped to pioneer an entirely new approach to Ai focused services, one that looks at ‘self-evolving systems’ and ‘minimum viable personality’ to help solve societal and human issues. He is the author of the bestselling, book, “Hippo - Human Focused Digital”.
