We here at the London – Microsoft Data & AI group know that data is the future, and we hope you do too!
As the field of data & AI progresses we feel that it is important to come together to share knowledge and discuss key topics. Artificial intelligence has the power to affect all of us, and in this space we can learn about all the amazing developments being made, as well as some of the cautionary tales.
We are a growing community of technical and non-technical like-minded people, with a passion for all things data & AI. Our events have ranged from hands on technical hackathons to presentations and networking. We have had some amazing speakers from a variety of background and expertise, including some of our own leading experts at Microsoft as well as both research and industry specialists.
We also aim to raise awareness about diversity issues in the industry and how they could have negative impacts of the future of AI. Previous events have focussed on the need for Accessible AI and the importance of increasing the number of women in the field.
We aim to run events at least every other month, and our events are always free to attend as we believe everyone should have access to these discussions. Free food usually included!
