Join us at This Work Space to learn more about BIMA and how you can get involved from new MD, Holly Hall, followed by “Better Than Humanly Possible” – a talk from Chair of the BIMA Ai Think Tank and Co-founder of Us Ai, Pete Trainor

Conversations about artificial intelligence tend to go in one of two directions; Rampaging-robot chaos, or the greatest opportunity to solve humanities problems since Penicillin. Popular culture and social media have conditioned people to believe in sentient robots or job loss, and often overlooks the amazing things we can achieve when we work with the machines. The real Ai revolution is happening under the surface, making existing technology smarter and unlocking the power in the data that businesses have collected for decades. Join the BIMA Ai Think Tank for a look at the state of the industry, and an incredible case study from ‘Us Ai’ of doing ‘more than humanly possible’.

This event is for BIMA members and non members.
