On 24th & 25th February, BT Applied Research in partnership with Orbital Global, held the inaugural AI Festival.
The festival comprised key speakers from Facebook, Google and NASA, as well as MIT’s Daniela Rus.
The festival explored examples of cutting-edge innovation from companies in the East of England and beyond including our tech cluster Innovation Martlesham, and examined the implications for business, skills and employment.
The event showcased exciting breakthroughs in AI with practical demonstrations, keynote presentations and networking sessions. There were also several thought-provoking talks from world leading experts examining subjects such as the ethical challenges faced by this technology.
