"Information architecture before artificial intelligence – the role of core information skills in the era of the robots"

Media headlines or social tweets are often about amazing new ways to do daily tasks using artificial intelligence (AI), robots and other new technologies. But what actually makes these tools ‘intelligent’? Dig a little deeper and you’ll discover that it’s actually a true understanding of data and information, and its architecture and organisation that drives the success of new technologies.

Learn about why building cross-functional teams of domain and information experts is key to the successful implementation.  Understand why making this solely a “coder’s” task has many negative issues from lack of success (think Silicon Valley comedy’s ‘Hot Dog, Not a Hot Dog’) through to genuinely problematic moral and ethical issues.

Our speaker will explain the role that core information and knowledge skills play in this revolution and predicts that these core skills will become fashionable. This talk is essential for anyone who doesn’t want to be left behind by robots!

8:00pm-9:00pm Networking with refreshments (open to all)
