AI Con will bring global AI leaders from companies such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft together with the AI community in Belfast, to talk about some of the most important technological advances in AI and how it’s changing the world in which we live.

The conference, taking place on 28 November 2019 at The Europa Hotel, will also examine the very practical ways in which AI is transforming how businesses operate and will look at how the latest advances in AI research can be implemented.

With two tracks running simultaneously, Business and Technology, this event will attract senior business leaders who want to explore the potential of AI for their business or sector. It will also appeal to a technical and engineering audience who want to gain a better understanding of how to get started in delivering AI solutions and what the most useful tools, techniques, platforms and practical lessons are. This conference will also explore issues around security, privacy, ethics, and ops pipelines.

The conference will be led by Tom Gray, Chief Technology Officer of Kainos and is sponsored by Innovate UK, DigitalCatapult NI, IET and Invest NI, and supported by Belfast City Council.

Tom Gray, chief technology officer at Kainos said AI is an area of rapid growth in the technology sector.

“There is an incredible amount of work being done locally to move it from research, into business and job creation,” he said.

“AI is entering a new ‘age of implementation’ which means many trailblazing companies are now applying increasingly mature and proven technologies and techniques to solve real problems and create new business opportunities for companies and organisations in every sector.

“The time is now right to bring our AI community together with potential beneficiaries of the technology to talk about how we grow skills and the economy and, as we’ve done with the software sector, make the responsible implementation of AI a core strength of the region.”
