DigixSpaces: Machine Learning & AI – Meet the speakers

DigixSpaces: Machine Learning & AI at Spaces Acero in Sheffield

The developments in Artificial Intelligence have taken the world by storm. Dispersing into industries that we never expected it to, as well as streamlining business processes. There is a hunch though. Almost like the elephant in the room. One that we all fear but don’t really know what to do about it. Are these advancements something to be scared of? Will they jeopardize our jobs? Should we really be giving all these computer systems so much data about ourselves?
