AI4C Chairman at Tri-Livery

8 September 2020

The power of AI to deliver economic and social good

Maxine Ricketts, AI4C Chairman, was a key speaker at this year’s Tri-Livery event.

Each year, the Information Technologists, Stationers and Marketors host Tri-Livery events, usually at Stationers Hall in the City.

Access to a recording of the event is available to AI4C members.

This year the topic was:

The power of AI to deliver economic and social good.

We hear so much about AI, machine learning that will eventually do us all out of jobs, but a closer look reveals that it is very much in our lives already, and often a force for good. So how do we define AI and how is it already shaping our world?

Come and hear from leading AI practitioners on the impact on our evolving world across a range of domains. Learn how we can see it in practise in medicine, cyber security, charity and commerce.
