In the past, people wrote programs to process data in order to achieve outcomes. Now there is a change taking place: Mathematicians and Data Scientists are instead training machines to learn for themselves, and this means exciting new solutions to the world’s problems are within reach. Recognising handwriting, playing board games and face filters was just the start. Watch this space for complex disease detection, whole artificial world generation, elaborate environment modelling, etc. Humanities most urgent issues are within our targets.
If you are currently studying Maths, Stats or Computer Science, come along to this exciting virtual event learn how your skills will be centre stage in this new and exciting world of Machine Learning.
In the words of Dame Wendy Hall:
‘Diversity should be included as part of any ethical framework for AI. In other words if it’s not diverse it’s not ethical’
.. which is why we’re reaching out to young women to join the cause.
