You and AI

You and AI is a collaborative effort to help people understand what machine learning and AI are, how the technology works and the ways it may affect our lives. The series will be hosted on four dates at the Royal Society in London before moving to a large London arts venue and finally Manchester later in the year.

Leading experts from the tech industry, academia and civil society will gather at the Royal Society to launch a flagship series of events designed to be an open and robust conversation about the potential and pitfalls of advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The launch of You and AI follows the Royal Society’s in-depth assessment of public views of machine learning which found that just one in ten members of the UK public recognised the term "machine learning", even though the technology – a form of artificial intelligence (AI) – is already part of our everyday lives.
