Event description
An interactive learning and networking event on applied AI to help attendees understand the art of the possible.

About this Event

What is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and what does it mean for my business? Is it an opportunity or a threat? What sort of technical capability do I need to bring AI into my business? Will I end up being replaced by a robot anyway?

AI is difficult to generally define because there is no single and set definition or concept for intelligence; so the context for Intelligence is highly relevant. In terms of applying to businesses, context is equally relevant. An organisation working with traditional processes, perhaps involving a blend of people, processes and data (likely in a spreadsheet!), has to consider how to change processes and adapt to new technologies and approaches. This change is likely to be incremental and contextual, both organisationally and sectorally.

The Glasgow Data Lab Hub event - part of the Scottish Innovation’s Centre two-week festival of data innovation (https://www.datafest.global) - will seek to demystify and explain some of the key issues around the application of AI in businesses. Speakers will offer insight into what we mean when we talk about AI, the art of the possible, the pros and cons of trying to get up to speed with AI, as well as practical examples of businesses adopting new data science-led approaches.

The event’s target audience is Scottish-based SMEs (and public sector organisations) with an interest in understanding AI better, how it is being used by Scottish-based companies and making sense of applied data science in your own business context.

Event Speakers (start time 9.30am):

Steven Grier (Scotland Country Manager, Microsoft)Professor David Corne (Head of Intelligent Systems Lab, Heriot-Watt University) Adam Sroka (Senior Data Scientist, Incremental Group)Kirsty Mitchell (CEO, Skillz Miner) Craig Paterson (The Data Lab).

A buffet lunch will be available from 12.30pm for attendees who wish to stay and network.

A booking-only session between 1-2pm will allow four companies to have a 30-minute ‘Data Doctor’ and 'Data Plumber’ session with The Data Lab data scientist, Joanna McKenzie, and The Data Lab’s solutions architect, Rhona MacLennan. These informal sessions are designed to allow companies to meet and chat with Data Lab staff to discuss relevant technical issues. We will be happy to organise a follow-on chat if required. Those interested in booking a slot in advance should contact: darran.gardner@thedatalab.com
