Summary of event :

There has been much talk of robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) replacing people and leading to mass unemployment. Is this fear justified or will we see a rise in human-in-the-loop style of automation, where AI works closely with people to increase their productivity?

For many, AI is new and brings with it uncertainty about jobs and the future. BCSWomen, as part of its AI Accelerator programme, and in collaboration with WiTT, is bringing together a group of experts, practitioners, and thought leaders to discuss some of the important questions that AI raises:
