Winter Seminar - "Let’s be Frenemies…You, Me and AI"

Royal College of General Practitioners, 30 Euston Square, London NW1 2FB
Friday 06 December 2019, 9.00 AM - 4:00 PM


This year’s Winter Seminar picks up the AI theme considered from a philosophical aspect. What makes us human, and how intelligent will AI get? How are judgement based choices made? Are morals and ethics inherent or learnt, and can these be applied and displayed through technology? 

In an environment where AI and Researcher/Analyst are increasingly working together we’ll look at how this emerging relationship is progressing alongside the challenges and success stories it has produced. And by exploring the strengths of both sides we’ll ask how we can be complementary partners now and into the future.
