    Wed 3rd Oct 11:00 to 11:30

    The Network’s next act. Going beyond the previously possible

    With the emergence of AI, IOT and the creation of ever expanding amounts of data, we have reached an inflection point where connection is our universal currency.

    A world with infinite potential to transform business, communities, social movements and the global economy. Yet simultaneously threatened by billions of cyber-attacks every day.

    In this talk hear how this new reality requires a different approach. Where each stage of your business — securing, processing, collaborating, innovating, disrupting — requires a new level of understanding and trust in the infrastructure that powers your ambitions. One where you will need to choose a fundamentally new way forward.

    Wed 3rd Oct 11:40 to 12:10

    Hello World: how to be human in the age of the machine

    Would you trust an algorithm to send someone to jail? Or to diagnose someone with cancer? How about an algorithm that analysed your friendships to calculate if you were reliable enough to take out a loan? These aren’t hypothetical questions about our distant future. We’re already living in the age of the algorithm. A world where machines rule supreme – making the important decisions in healthcare, transport, finance and security. They’re telling us what to watch, where to go even who to send to prison. So how much should we rely on them to know what’s best? And can we trust them over our own judgement? In this talk, we’ll go on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. We’ll lift the lid on their inner workings, demonstrate their power, expose their limitations, and examine whether they really are an improvement on the humans they are replacing.

    Wed 3rd Oct 13:40 to 14:10

    It’s the End of the World and I Feel Fine – Artificial Intelligence, Apocalypticism, and Human Identity

    Anthropologist Dr Beth Singler will introduce some of the key narratives round artificial intelligence that are affecting the public conception of the technology and its development. She will address the impact of science fiction as well as science fact on hopes and fears for humanity’s future in a world of ‘nearly human’ machines. Drawing on anthropological fieldwork at tech conferences, transhumanist gatherings, among the existential risk eco-system, and among online communities, she will explore how public perception on Artificial Intelligence is shaped and what those shapings might mean for the future of this technology.

  • PANEL: IP EXPO HOT TOPIC: AI Panel  |  Keynote Theatre

    Keynote Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 15:40 to 16:30

    PANEL: IP EXPO HOT TOPIC: AI

    No longer purely in the realms of science fiction the use of AI has exploded in the past few years, already being used to improve healthcare, enable self-driving cars, and stop security breaches. Undoubtedly the hottest topic in IT right now, AI is redefining how we live, interact and do business – it is set to have a profound impact on our everyday lives.

    Most companies already use AI to some degree, for example it is now commonplace as part of a spam filter. However it is accepted wisdom that in the future AI will become a core part of every company’s technology strategy. Learn what is already possible with AI directly from the companies using or developing this technology and discover what will be possible in the near future.

  • Seeing Through Human Eyes: The Power and Perils of AI Carla Echevarria  |   Google  |   Keynote Theatre

    Keynote Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 11:00 to 11:30

    Seeing Through Human Eyes: The Power and Perils of AI

    In the age of intelligent machines, the most significant threat comes not from malicious machines, but from their human creators. How might we design AI systems that do not inherit human error and bias? We will discuss the process of developing machine learning systems – data gathering, model training, output generation, and human programming – and the principles of design that we must apply to these processes, in order to create AI systems that are truly beneficial for people.

  • How digital is helping advance the energy transition Morag Watson   |   BP  |   Keynote Theatre

    Keynote Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 11:40 to 12:10

    How digital is helping advance the energy transition

    The world is growing fast, it’s changing even faster and it’s calling for more from the energy industry every day – not just more energy, but energy that’s better and cleaner. That’s the dual challenge. Deliver around a third more energy by 2040 and lift two and half billion out of low income. Digital technology can have a major impact on solving this dual challenge and we estimate that technologies such as supercomputing, data analytics and artificial intelligence could shift how society produces and consumes energy.
     
    In this keynote, Morag Watson, Chief Digital Innovation Officer at BP, will explain how digitization is helping BP advance the energy transition by reducing emissions, improving efficiency and creating new businesses.

  • PANEL: Privacy vs Security - the good, the bad & the ugly Panel  |  Keynote Theatre

    Keynote Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 12:20 to 13:10

    PANEL: Privacy vs Security - the good, the bad & the ugly

    Privacy has been in the spotlight in recent years with revelation about how much access both government agencies and more recently social networks have to personal data. However in a catch-22 situation both privacy at the expense of security and security at the expense of privacy seem to be equally unpalletable. So how does one strike a balance between two sides so far at odds with each other and find a middle ground acceptable to all parties?

  • Bringing Enterprise to the Blockchain - Moving from Science Experiment to Practical Business Mainstream
    James Allerton-Austin  |   Oracle   |   Keynote Theatre

    Keynote Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 13:40 to 14:10

    Bringing Enterprise to the Blockchain - Moving from Science Experiment to Practical Business Mainstream

    Blockchain is one of the most popular talking points in the IT industry today, with thousands of technical proofs, use-cases and experiments being planned and delivered to show the value of this technology. For all of this, when asked about production deployments of blockchain for the real enterprises of today, most of the proponents of this value will demur when it comes to talking production. Bridging this gap between science experiment and an enterprise quality platform for the modern business requires a great deal of work, much of which is done by the growing community of vendors who are collaborating to deliver not just the technical requirement and use-case solutions for blockchain, but also the practical tools to use blockchain in a meaningful way within a business. join this session to hear about the 5 key qualities that any practically usable enterprise blockchain will need to deliver and how the collaboration of enterprise vendors is making the practical use of Blockchain a reality for organisations in 2018.
