About the event

This talk is focused on the developments in artificial intelligence (A.I) and machine learning (the subset of A.I that focuses on building systems that learn—or improve performance—based on the data they consume).

Our first talk will include:

  • Daniel Hulme - TEDx Speaker and CEO of Satalia
  • Dr Philip Ronney - Machine Learning Expert for small business
  • Harpal Singh - Chief Product Officer- Building AI and Machine Learning

Daniel Hulme is the CEO of Satalia - one of the few companies globally creating full-stack A.I that can self-adapt from their decisions. This is a must see talk for anyone interested in A.I, big data or the ethics of emerging technology. Daniel will discuss the impact A.I and blockchain will have on society and the ability it may have to disrupt business.
