The Big Debate: We should fear advances in Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a controversial subject, with the late, great Professor Stephen Hawking warning in 2014 that the development of full AI could spell the end of the human race. But should we fear advances in AI?

The Institute of Directors Norfolk, in partnership Barclays Eagle Labs Norwich, invites you to a panel debate about the potential benefits and consequences of the advancements of AI, at The Enterprise Centre, UEA on Thursday 19 July, 18:00-20:30.

The event, sponsored by UEA and Price Bailey, will bring together a panel of experts covering the fields of AI Developers, Legal, Academia and Cyber Security to debate what AI will mean for all of us.

The panel, chaired by Kieran Miles - Founder of KakeCo and #DigitalCity, will consist of:

  • Chand Chudasama – Price Bailey LLP
  • Dom Davis – Tech Marionette
  • David Higgins – 4ITSec
  • Jodie Hosmer – Mills & Reeve
  • Kane Halsley – Pickr
  • Dr Gareth Jones – University of East Anglia
  • Ana Perales – Barclays

There will be refreshments and canapés served before and after the debate, with opportunities for networking and further discussion.

We are asking for questions to be submitted in advance, to facilitate a robust and lively debate.
