What we're about

A Potential IBM AI X Prize Contender (

Further details will be added at

What would you want from a local tech community AI special interest group???
-- We can hopefully do what you and other people want !!!
-> So you can have a regular interesting useful constructive and fun sociable time at these meetings.

What are the open and unsolved AI questions and how could they be solved?

Come along to discuss, contribute (if you wish), listen and learn about AI and its future.

I would ideally like to work full-time on a community-led open source AI project. This is very unlikely to happen as I would need a huge amount of funding.

I think I have some great ideas that no one else appears to be recognising and pursuing.

I am not good at writing up complex ideas as a business proposal. I need help as I am dyslexic.

Would you be interested in trying to get funding or working on such a project?

If none of this works out we can also have a fun sociable and interesting time.

Based at Barclays Eagle Labs Brighton.

Barclays are offering us free refreshments and free beer.

Aiming To Be:
AI Research Project & AI Training Charity,
Non Commercial and Ethical,
Providing Commercial Infrastructure and Eco-System,
Community Based - Encouraging AI Research, Safety, Ethics & Acceptance,
Creating An AI Embedded Core System,

HEMSEYE Mission Statement:

Do No Evil, Don’t Be Evil.
Provide Human-Like AI As A Force For Good.
Make Ethical AI, Make Safe AI.
Commit To Assist In Banning L.A.W.S

Like a Knife, AI Will Always Be Able To Be Used For Evil.

• Always Seeking Sponsorship

• If this project folds where would any "charity" raised money go? - Children In Need UK Perhaps?

• Are there any return guarantees? – None. This Will Hopefully Be a Research / Educational Charity.

• We Will Aim To Give You No Direct Return For Any Money Given.

• At all Costs We Will Aim To Ignore Any Undue Influence Received From Donors
