Creative Clusters: You + A.I.
Artificial intelligence (A.I.) is impacting almost every aspect of our lives. It is in our smartphones, our cars, our banks, our fitness trackers and our entertainment streaming platforms. It is being used to develop more efficient services in healthcare, education, finance, and transport. But with the increasing commentary in the media about robots taking our jobs, do we have cause for concern?
At You + A.I. Creative Cluster series we will start at the very beginning. If you are unsure what A.I. is, what it means, where it is being used, but are very curious, then this cluster series is for YOU. Previous technical knowledge is NOT required! You will hear from UTS researchers, industry thought leaders and some amazing minds in the field of artificial intelligence.
The four-part workshop program commences Tuesday 10 October and will run each Tuesday night until 31 October 2017. The sessions open at 5:30pm for a 6pm start and will conclude at 8pm.
