Technology - including mobile devices and cloud computing - has fundamentally changed the way we consume news, plan our day, communicate, shop and interact with our family, friends and colleagues. 

This change will continue to evolve at a rapid pace as Machine Learning and AI augment our human capabilities. 

Learn more about what is possible today and what we need to think about for the future. 

Join Pete Trainor, Author of the Human Focused Digital book & chair of the Ai Think Tank, and James Akrigg, Head of Technology for Partners from Microsoft as they lead a very special industry dinner to discuss, debate, debunk and demystify Ai.

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. His recently published, bestselling, book, "Hippo - Human Focused Digital" takes a philosophical look at technology and design, challenging us to look inwardly at the self when designing future technologies. Pete regularly appears in UK national and international press as an analyst on emergent technologies, and tech markets. Pete also chairs the Ai Think Tank for BIMA. He has a very simple philosophy: Don't do things better, do better things.

James has worked in and around the IT industry for over 20 years, which includes the last 13 years at Microsoft in the UK. His passion for technology and what it can do to deliver real value and benefit to businesses of all sizes and to individuals is clear to see when he presents and meets with Microsoft partners and customers. With experience in infrastructure, architecture, software development, business process, information management, software and hardware technologies, James is able to simplify how to use what can be a complex mix of technologies to deliver solutions in today's business environments.
