Deep Dive: The Realities and Limitations of AI

Pembroke College Auditorium

With the rise of generative AI, the focus has commonly been drawn to broad topics such as ethics, regulation and security – with discussions mostly concluding that they’re areas that are still in development. But what is it like to actually work with AI day-in and day-out? What is the reality of AI? Where are we seeing the benefits? What are the limitations?

Join us in a hype-free zone for an evidence-based discussion on the realities and limitations of working with AI.

10:15-10:30 Keynote: Lifting the lid – the technologies behind AI
10:30-11:15 Panel: The Stages of Application from R&D and spin-outs to enterprise
