AI is only just hitting the news, but a surprising amount is already incorporated into our daily lives, and has been for years. Join us as we debunk myths of an evil AI uprising and show how many AI technologies are a useful tool for good. Learn about the world of large language models and be inspired by scientists wielding AI to diagnose health issues of both buildings and humans.

+ demonstrations, games and hands-on activities for you to enjoy and prizes to be won!

AI looking into your heart and lungs – the good side!

Dr Krit Dwivedi (School of Medicine and Population Health)
Join us to hear about how we are combining the worlds of AI and medicine to improve patient care. Discover the basics of AI and its applications in medical imaging, like CT and MRI scans. Finally, learn about the benefits AI brings to healthcare, our commitment to developing responsible AI, and our firsthand experiences with this rapidly developing technology. You’ll be sure to hear valuable insights and become clued up on the promising future of AI in medicine.

How long has ChatGPT really been around?

Dr Mark Stevenson (Senior Lecturer Computer Science)
Language models, like ChatGPT, have recently exploded into the public consciousness, but most of us have already been using them for years without realising. Come to this talk and learn how these models were created and how they operate. Hopefully, we will dispel the myths and hype that surround these technologies by demystifying their decades-long history and informing you on what they actually do!

When is a bridge not an aeroplane?

Professor Keith Worden (Mechanical Engineering)
We know the importance of monitoring human health, but do you know about the people and technologies which oversee the structures we use every day, which degrade with time, just like us! This talk will introduce you to structural health monitoring (SHM); how we can measure the health state of a structure. We will introduce you to the technologies used and will explain the need to move away from SHM to a population-based approach. This essentially means taking data from one structure – including bridges, aeroplanes, wind turbines and the human body – to help us diagnose others.
