Tuesday 17th November 2021, 14:30 – 15:30 GMT

AI Regulation: who is on the hook?

Tuesday 26th October 2021, 14:30 – 15:30 GMT

AI will bring advances in almost every sector of life, such that AI dominance has become a defining objective of the worlds’ biggest powers. But private companies are driving innovations that define interactions between nations from trade to military. How is AI redefining power between states and between the state and the private sector?

CYber Summit

Can we stay ahead of cybercrime in a digital age?

Thursday 30th September 2021, 10:30-17:30 BST

What seemed like the plot of an action thriller 20 years ago has become a commonplace reality. Cyber attacks today shut down hospitals, oil pipelines and power grids; and can wreak havoc on both state and private institutions. As our working and personal lives become ever-more digitised, we are more at risk from cyber crime than ever. From phishing calls and emails, advanced viruses and malware, to the organised shut-down of essential national infrastructure; how can nations, businesses and individuals protect themselves? What does the future of cybersecurity look like? Can we stay ahead of cybercrime in this digital age?

AI Network Roundtable

Cyber Security: The Next Global Arms Race?

Tuesday 27th April 2021, 14:30 – 16:00 BST

Covid-19 has increased online activity, leading to more sensitive data being stored than ever before. At the same time, artificial intelligence and machine learning are accelerating the development of new and sophisticated cyber attack tools. With this increasing risk, how can nations, organisations and individuals stay ahead of cyber criminals in what might be the next global arms race?

Impatient for the patient: how can AI accelerate healthcare?

Tuesday 23rd March 2021, 14:30 – 16:00 GMT

The pandemic has seen a rapid acceleration in the development of some health technologies. Processes that might have taken ten years, have been accelerated to take ten months. A key part of the continued acceleration of health technology is artificial intelligence, informatics and computing. Using techniques like these promise increased return rates on research, better management of data, diagnostics and many more benefits. So how can AI make us faster, more rigorous, efficient and effective when it comes to being impatient for the patient?


AI Network Roundtable

Tuesday 23rd February 2021, 14:30 – 16:00 GMT

When it comes to artificial intelligence, a handful of smaller nations around the world are leading the way in a number of areas, from innovation to adoption. The Tortoise AI Network asks how, why and if the UK needs to learn from their example?


AI Network Roundtable

AI Adoption: Who’s leading the way?

Tuesday 26th January 2021, 14:30 – 16:00 GMT

The pandemic has intensified a host of issues to which capitalism has no answers. Disease, inequality, climate collapse – all of which demand urgent and coordinated attention. Mariana Mazzucato proposes a renewal of ‘public purpose’ and a rethinking of the role of government within our spluttering economies. What applied role do moonshots in artificial intelligence and other technologies have to play, in the new ‘mission economy’?


AI Network Roundtable

How can responsible businesses ensure they approach AI the right way?

Tuesday 22nd February, 2022, 13:00-14:00 GMT

Businesses face a number of obstacles when it comes to adopting or absorbing more artificial intelligence. From the availability of talent to making a financial case for investment; these challenges demand unique and sector-specific solutions. Almost all companies have an incentive to adopt, and they do face some common challenges when it comes to doing so responsibly; not least creating trust, appropriate governance and navigating regulation. How can businesses ensure that they approach adoption in a way that protects stakeholders, observes regulation and puts value for their people at the centre of AI projects?
