We are currently supporting the team at BRLSI as they develop their next programme of talks, matching researchers from the University against a list of subjects that BRLSI patrons have said they'd be interested in learning about.
In May, Nello Cristianini, Professor of Artificial Intelligence in our Department of Computer Science, gave a talk titled 'Living with Intelligent Machines' which explored the steps that took us to the present form of AI, what we can expect from it, and how we can manage our relationship with it, including its legal regulation.
The next talk we're running at BRLSI will be given by Hannah Hutton, a PhD researcher from our School of Management. She is speaking about her research into mobile phone app tracking and ad-tech, and will outline how the data you generate on your smartphone can be translated into profit for advertisers. Tickets are available at: https://www.brlsi.org/whatson/how-to-outsmart-your-smartphone-advertisers/.
We are now working on a series of talks for the autumn semester - if you are a Bath researcher and have a talk that you'd like to share with the audience at BRLSI please do get in touch with me. If you'd like to see the full programme of BRLSI talks you can do on the organisations website.
