Imperial Lates: AI

14 March 2024, 18.00-21.00

Lift the lid on Artificial Intelligence and explore how it might influence our future through expert talks, tech demos and creative workshops.

Artificial Intelligence's potential impact on our lives has made countless headlines in recent years. But what is the reality? How can we make best use of this revolutionary new technology? And how can we mitigate any dangers it might bring?

Join our community of AI experts as they come together to explore these questions in new and creative ways at the final Imperial Lates of the 2023/24 season:

  • Find out who stands to benefit from a world run on AI and use the latest predictive tools to imagine how London might look in the future
  • Join an AI-powered silent disco and become part of a single-intelligent being as you dance
  • Wear AI-proof facepaint designed to fool facial recognition tech
  • Attend a demonstration on AI-assisted robot vision
  • Delve into how pop culture has distorted views of an AI future and what human skills will be valued by tomorrow's employers at our expert talk

Throw in a bar and a human-generated DJ set and you should have all the data points you need to join us at the next Imperial Lates!

Imperial Lates are intended for an 18+ audience. 

Register for this Imperial Lates to receive a preview of the full programme of live demonstrations, workshops and talks, and help us track attendance numbers. Please note that registration alone does not guarantee seats for our talks or workshops.
