UEA invites you to attend the latest event in our AI series with the opportunity to hear from Andy Stanford-Clark - CTO at IBM UK, ‘Master Inventor,’ and UEA alumnus.

The event, compered by Tim Robinson, COO at TechEast, will explore the opportunities presented by not only AI, but also the Internet of Things and technology more generally, and our panel, representing our region’s key sectors, will discuss the practical applications at the front end of the business.

The panel includes:

Energy – Johnathan Reynolds, MD at Nautilus Associates

Finance – Owen Morris, MD at Aviva Quantum (Aviva’s Global Data Science Practice)

Healthcare – Ben Meen, Project Manager at Norse Care

Also joining the panel is Prof Emma Griffin, from UEA’s School of History, providing perspective from her latest project ‘Living with Machines’, set to be one of the biggest humanities and science research initiatives ever in the UK. ‘Living with Machines’ takes a radical approach to collaboration, bringing together data scientists and software engineers from The Alan Turing Institute and curators from the British Library, as well as computational linguists, digital humanities scholars and historians to provide context to debates around the so-called ‘fourth industrial revolution’.

Date: Thursday 28 March 2019

Time: 17:30-20.30
