  • Face up to IT Facial recognition, AI and more - and Ethics - London North Branch

Biometric Artificial Intelligence systems try to uniquely identify a person by analysing patterns based on facial textures and shape.


There is increasing use and coordination of IT, AI, CCTV, big data, IoT and GPS systems to spot individuals and groups of people, to track their locations and movements, and even to deduce their intentions.


But as yet, mechanisms and assumptions are often inadequate or incorrect – and lead to significant ethical issues, as well as legal, privacy and other questions.


What do you think? Come to this event to hear and discuss these important topics.



Our presenter is:


KAMAL KHAN – Director, ISACA London Chapter
Kamal is a certified CISA, CISSP and Chartered IT Professional with a Master’s degree in Analysis, Design and Management of Information Systems. He is highly experienced and qualified in IT Security, Governance and Audit. With over 30 years’ experience in a range of industries, he has had to address risks and challenges of managing highly complex information systems in oil and gas processing plants, refineries, financial institutions, utilities, hospitals, shipping and distribution systems.



This event will be preceded by the Branch 2019 AGM at 6.30pm - all welcome, but only BCS Members can vote on matters arising.  The presentation will start at 7.10pm, then informal networking with food and drink.




We are experiencing increasingly high numbers of people booking BCS London events - then not showing up. Please, think twice before you book a place - and cancel if you can no longer attend.  This leaves space for those who can genuinely attend and is important for health & safety at the venue, plus allows us to avoid food wastage.  Thank you.


Please note, duplicate delegate names will be deleted. For overseas delegates who wish to attend the event, please note that BCS does not issue invitation letters.


FILMING: This event may be filmed and recording could be used for future publicity.
