Workshop sessions that will be a deep dive into domain challenges, platforms, and approaches to tackle these issues. We will have enough time for discussions and networking between the peers.

SYNOPSIS

“Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold.” — Ray Kurzweil

Artificial intelligence promises to aid and augment humans in all facets of our life. As the decisions made by an intelligent system may have wide implications, ethical questions must be resolved as the technology development progresses. Open RD&E can help to increase trust and reduce the risks.

In this workshop, we have a two-fold goal:
- bring together scientists, users, and vendors to talk about open source platforms and models for artificial intelligence.

- discuss socially relevant use cases and challenges and how they are addressed with AI.

The full-day workshop is structured into two sections, a morning and afternoon workshop session that will be a deep dive into domain challenges, platforms, and approaches to tackle these issues. We will have enough time for discussions and networking between the peers.

In the evening, we will follow the traditional BCS OSSG schedule that allows employees to participate: We will have a series of talks each followed by a short Q&A.
