and the Future

Thursday 29 September 2016

6pm - 7.00pm

8 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6EZ


With his AI project DeepMind, Demis Hassabis has said he is leading “an Apollo programme for the 21st century”. But how far can AI really take us?

Demis Hassabis is the co-founder and CEO of DeepMind, a neuroscience-inspired AI company, acquired by Google in 2014. He is now Vice President of Engineering at Google DeepMind and leads their general AI efforts, including the development of AlphaGo, the first program to ever beat a professional player at the game of Go.

In this special event at the RSA, Demis Hassabis offers a unique insight from the frontiers of artificial intelligence research, and shares his latest thoughts on AI’s potential to help solve our biggest current and future challenges, from healthcare to climate change.

Speaker: Demis Hassabis, co-founder and CEO, DeepMind

Chair: Matthew Taylor, RSA Chef Executive
