Facebook, Google, and BT are just some of the leading technology companies set to share their knowledge and insights at the AI Festival, on 24 and 25 February 2021. Created by Suffolk based Orbital Global and BT, this virtual event is a unique initiative that will explore the implications for business, skills, and employment in relation to what could be the defining technology of the 21st Century.
Taking place online at www.aiglobalfestival.com and accessible globally, the ticketed, two-day event brings together a range of sector specialists to share their experiences and forecasts for the future in a series of inspirational keynote talks, workshops, ‘fireside chats’, and technology demonstrations.
Professor Tim Whitley, MD of Research at BT, comments, ‘The East of England is one of the world’s leading locations for AI innovation. At BT we’re proud to play a leading role in that as the UK’s most prolific filer of AI patents, so we’re delighted to broadcast this inaugural event virtually from Adastral Park, our Martlesham R&D campus.’
The line-up includes former NASA scientist, Peter Scott, who worked for the space agency’s famed Jet Propulsion Laboratory, speaking about the future of AI and technology, Professor Paul Hunter from University of East Anglia will share what the pandemic tells us about future AI and digital based approaches to health, and Daniela Rus from MIT will provide an overview of AI robotic automation and the opportunities this offers the average business.
