HYBRID Workshop Theme: The Future is AI: Industry 4.0

Attendance Type: Online via Zoom and in-person

Workshop 1:

Are we Ready to Open a Door to a Very Human Future in a Digitised World?

Workshop Speaker: Steve Wells (Guest speaker)

Our world is on track to become ever more digitised, ever more automated, and ever less human. But is that really humanity’s fate? Yes our world can be characterised by exponential technology development but with a change mindset, extraordinary leadership, enabled by operating on three time horizons in parallel perhaps we can open the door to a very human future in a digitised world.

In this speech, futurist Steve Wells will; explore the technological backdrop that is underpinning radical change across life, society, and business; share his thoughts on the leadership challenge that results from rapid and radical technology-enabled change, and layout 10 themes that could open the door to a very human future in a digitised world.

Steve Wells is a futurist, speaker, facilitator, and founder of Informing Choices Ltd an insights business specialising in futures and foresight. His work is designed to help individuals and organisations make informed choices about the emerging future by exploring drivers of future change, trends, and plausible future scenarios. He is also co-editor of and contributing writer to six books about the emerging future including A Very Human Future – Enriching Humanity in a Digitised World.

Workshop 2: Fairness and Biases in ML and AI

Workshop Speaker: Eduardo Contreras Cortes (Founding member of the Data Science Speakers Club)

In his workshop, financial modelling manager Eduardo will start by defining what fairness means in the context of ML and AI algorithms. Then, he will cover some of the most common definitions of fairness and the way to quantify these definitions. The last part of the workshop will cover ways to attack the discrimination of ML and AI models with an interactive example.
