More and more of daily life - from what we see to what we buy, what we do, and even how we are policed - is determined by increasingly complex algorithms. To some, artificial intelligence is an existential threat to human survival (or at least to human jobs). To many, AI robots will drive this century's economic growth. Innovation is a key driver of growth and new, disruptive ideas form the heart of innovation. Therefore, a key question is - can AI generate new ideas?

We are delighted to announce our first speaker - Professor Stephen Emmott. Until recently, he was Head of Computational Science at Microsoft where he created and led a laboratory that gained worldwide recognition for pioneering radically new kinds of science and technological innovation. He is now Managing Director and Chief Scientist of Scientific Asset Management. He is a computational neuroscientist, as well as the author of the international bestseller "10 Billion".
