Find out about the opportunities for AI at a global virtual festival which is being livecast from Suffolk this month. 

The AI Festival will be broadcast from BT's research facility at Martlesham Heath - a hub of AI  innovation - and will feature high profile speakers from firms including Facebook and the Alan Turing Institute. 

Created by Suffolk based Orbital Global and BT, this virtual event is a unique initiative that will explore the implications for business, skills, and employment in relation to what could be the defining technology of the 21st Century. 

It is taking place online on 24 and 25 February. 

The line-up includes former NASA scientist, Peter Scott, who worked for the space agency’s famed Jet Propulsion Laboratory, speaking about the future of AI and technology, Professor Paul Hunter from University of East Anglia will share what the pandemic tells us about future AI and digital based approaches to health, and Daniela Rus from MIT will provide an overview of AI robotic automation and the opportunities this offers the average business. 

Professor Tim Whitley, MD of Research at BT, comments, ‘The East of England is one of the world’s leading locations for AI innovation. At BT we’re proud to play a leading role in that as the UK’s most prolific filer of AI patents, so we’re delighted to broadcast this inaugural event virtually from Adastral Park, our Martlesham R&D campus.’
