CogX 2018 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

MAIN STAGE – 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

TECH AND CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH

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.

STAGE SEVEN

MUSIC, ARTS, DESIGN, CULTURE

AI can compose symphonies in the style of Wagner or Bach so convincing that human listeners are unable to tell the difference. How long is it until much of the traditionally human creative endeavours can be realistically achieved by AI?

The nature of human creativity itself is changing drastically as personalised, AI-driven services cater to our every need and desire.

How will the affect the future of music, art, design and culture?

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.
