Well, what a ride it’s been! It was amazing having you all attend AIBE 2020, experiencing new things, interacting with other sectors, really getting involved in the discussion on what AI means for us today. With a fantastic range of speakers, from professors researching new fields to business people leading them, it was amazing to have so many minds working on AI gathered in one space. Thank you so much for everyone that attended and made it such a great success!

 

We talked about so many things, from how AI will impact the environment to the changes it will bring to democratic governance. From the strategic approach of the UK to smart cities and the security dynamics of this new AI age. We discussed solutions to trusting intelligent machines, discovered solutions to recycling cost issues, and followed the evolving path of machine learning as it grows as a diverse field.
Hopefully our AI trends got you thinking about your own sectors, and how these cutting edge advances might be applied as solutions to the myriad problems in your own areas of expertise.

 

Of course, the discussion never really stops! Our AIBE blog continues to publish weekly, with great research articles on AI in law and warfare, democracy, climate change and the business world. Make sure to follow us there to stay updated with the latest interesting and innovative actions in the field of AI. You can also find us on LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram for updates on blog posts and next year’s events.

 

Overall, from all of us at AIBE, we hope you had a great time with us this year, and that the conference helped you dive into what can feel like a constantly shifting (and fascinating) field at the intersection of AI, ethics and society.
