“The accelerator pedal is foot to the floor, but it’s not clear who’s got their hands on the wheel or in fact where we’re all going. CogX is bringing together incredible thought leaders from around the world to exchange views on the impact of AI across 18 industries and domains with an innovative format of keynotes, panels and breakout sessions. Each session will update us on the current status, identify the challenges and propose initiatives which will move the conversation forward”

Charlie Muirhead, Founder & CEO of CognitionX


Moving the conversation forward

CogX 2018 will bring together 4,000 attendees and 300 speakers across 5 main stages, more than doubling the size of the acclaimed inaugural 2017 event.

The event will feature an expanded agenda discussing not only The Impact of AI on Industry, Government and Society, but also the pressing question for executives of How To Get From Lab to Live and at the same time deploy AI responsibly and ethically.

CogX will explore how AI Intersects With Emerging Technologies including Blockchain, IoT and 5G telecoms, VR and AR, as well as the future of transportation, health and education.

The winners of the CogX 2018 Annual Awards will be revealed on Monday 11 June, recognising the best products and technology across all key industries and technological domains.


Agenda


At CogX 2018 we’re proud to announce that we will be running seven separate stages, each with their own theme and agenda over two days, creating over 112 hours of programming (not including workshops or breakouts).

The Stages

STAGE ONE

INDUSTRY, SOCIETY ECONOMY

How will AI impact the economy, financial services, healthcare and major industries globally?

What is the future of work?

How will we ensure the benefits are for the many, not just the few?

What is the latest thinking and where are we in modelling scenarios and proving out?

STAGE TWO

ETHICS AND RESPONSIBLE DEPLOYMENT

AI is forcing us to think harder and more precisely about ethics than ever before. This dedicated stage will dig into the ethical considerations that must be addressed if we are to have a responsible transition to being an AI-driven society.

e.g How can we guard against mistakes and how do we protect against unintended consequences?

STAGE THREE

GETTING FROM LAB TO LIVE

AI technology continues to be more widely adopted each year. This stage is dedicated to showcasing real case studies of AI being deployed at scale.

How to identify the problem and match it with and AI solution?

Do you build in-house or buy technology off the shelf?

How long did it take to get from concept to deployment?

What was he ROI?

What are the common potholes to avoid?

STAGE FOUR

THE CUTTING EDGE STAGE

New, novel approaches to AI are being developed at an unprecedented pace.

This stage will be run by the engineers and researchers pushing the boundaries of AI as they present their bleeding edge research and findings.

STAGE FIVE

BLOCKCHAIN AND THE DECENTRALISED FUTURE

Decentralised technologies have seen a huge wave of interest and controversy.

This stage is dedicated to penetrating the hype bubble and exploring the opportunities at the intersection of AI and decentralised technologies.

Leading engineers and entrepreneurs in this space will talk about the technologies that have real-world applications, from the safe storage of personal data to high-speed, low-cost payments.

STAGE SIX

FUTURE OF HEALTH

AI is being used to develop technologies that can enhance human health and wellness in a completely new way. AI solutions are highly accurate, totally personalised and infinitely more scalable than existing solutions.

This stage is dedicated to the leaders in this space who are building and deploying AI to the benefit of us all.

Themes

Impact of AI

AI is changing everything all industries and all sectors, government and society, join us to discuss.

Deployment is Mission Critical

AI no longer a buzz word, deploying AI is now critical to every business, government and society as a whole.

Celebrate Innovation

A positive, optimistic look at the new technology that will transform industries.

Global View

Speakers and delegates from all over the world both to listen to and learn from but also to share the thinking from the UK.

Diversity or Die

Every effort will be made to include people and the topics that explore diversity and the need for diversity in AI.

Emerging Technology

Disruptive technology is getting even more so – come and discuss the intersection of AI with Blockchain, IoT, AR, VR and more.
