BCS SGAI: Real AI Day October 9th: What can AI do for you?


The BCS AI Specialist Group (SGAI) is pleased to announce a day on Artificial Intelligence in Action at the BCS London office on Friday October 9th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., which we think will be an eye-opener for those who are not up to date with recent practical developments in this important field.

Organiser Dr Gilbert Owusu, Head of Resource Management Technologies Research at BT Research & Technology, says:

"Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques are in use in many business applications including fraud detection, speech recognition, fault diagnosis, game planning and resource management. Their applicability stems from the flexibility they provide in modelling and solving real world problems. 
Real AI 2015 will provide delegates with insights (case studies) into using AI to solve business problems. The case studies will outline the business problem and the steps taken to develop business applications of AI. Real AI is aimed at those using AI or who may be interested in understanding what AI can offer, and what it is doing right now."
Real AI 2015 includes presentations on
  • Designing large scale distributed participatory systems 
  • How To Survive An AI Winter 
  • Improving the efficiency of the construction industry by means of innovative GNSS-based AI approaches 
  • Ants, Mutants and beyond: combining formal and stochastic techniques to improve software 
  • Cognitive Analytics Tools
Real AI costs £90 + VAT for BCS members, £100 + VAT for non-members and only £50 + VAT for students. Group discounts are available.
