“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
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.
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).
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?
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.
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?
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 the ROI?
What are the common potholes to avoid?
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.
In partnership with The Alan Turing Institute, the national institute for data science and AI this stage will showcase the art of the possible, and advocate interdisciplinary research.

This stage will demonstrate the application of data science and AI to real-world problems. Core themes range from data-centric engineering, high-performance computing and cyber-security to smart cities, health, the economy and ethics.
The CogX 2018 Lightning Stage is a showcase of technologies and strategies from across the world.
Discover the most inspiring large companies, startups and scale-ups as they pitch their ideas, tools and technologies that will change the world.
Each Lightning Pitch will give you a glimpse into AI and technology applications that will drive the market forward in 2018 and beyond.
AI is changing everything all industries and all sectors, government and society, join us to discuss.
AI no longer a buzz word, deploying AI is now critical to every business, government and society as a whole.
A positive, optimistic look at the new technology that will transform industries.
Speakers and delegates from all over the world both to listen to and learn from but also to share the thinking from the UK.
Every effort will be made to include people and the topics that explore diversity and the need for diversity in AI.
Disruptive technology is getting even more so – come and discuss the intersection of AI with Blockchain, IoT, AR, VR and more.
Enjoy yourself while you explore the festival, leave us both having learnt something and smiling.
