This event will be an opportunity to catch up with each other's research, and discuss future directions and opportunities

It is a great pleasure to invite you to an event of the AI and its Practical Applications (AIPA) cluster. Most of us have not seen each other for some time, so this event will be an opportunity to renew acquaintances, catch up with each other's research, and discuss future opportunities. After gathering for coffee, we will welcome our external guest, Dr Stelios Kapetanakis from the University of Brighton. Dr Kapetanakis’ expertise includes recommendation systems and machine learning, and he has a rich experience of working with companies on practical applications. We are also planning a few short talks from colleagues (max. 15 mins each) on topical developments in AI applications, followed by a panel discussion about future directions and opportunities. We will finish with a networking lunch.

This event is supported by the Future & Emerging Technologies Theme. I do hope you will be able to join us, even if you cannot stay for the whole event. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Prof. Adrian Hopgood,

Theme Director, Future & Emerging Technologies
