The Road to Intelligent Automation

18/10/2018 @ 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics used to be something only featured in big budget block buster *sci-fi* movies.

However, AI is becoming commonplace, and while some within the business community are uneasy and alarmed by this, the businesses and sectors who are at the forefront of embracing AI are already seeing dramatic positive results.

Marc Hanheide, Professor of Intelligent Robotics & Interactive Systems in the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln will deliver his presentation and give you an insight into this horizon altering technology.

He will leave you in no doubt that AI will affect you and your business – it’s up to you to ensure this is a positive affect!

Attendees will have the chance to experience virtual reality (VR) courtesy of Tension VR. The reality may be a physical location such as Mount Everest or the ocean floor. Maybe an event in history, such as hopping around on the Moon, a simulated “other world” or back in time to pre-history, complete with dinosaurs!

Refreshments and breakfast will be served….by humans.
