Tech for Good: AI and Chatbots for good (rather than world destruction)


This month we'll be looking at how artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and chatbots can help organisations deliver services that have an extraordinary social impact.

Our Fine Speakers:
We'll have Matt Haworth, and a special guest from the Children's Commission, talking about an AI project that is currently in development to provide support to children and young people at risk of abuse.
More amazing speakers to be announced soon...

Lightning talks: 
We'll also have space for brief "lightning" talks on the night, where anyone will have a chance to speak for up to 3 minutes on something that helps more people do good with tech.

Sponsors:
Reason Digital have helped us arrange the event, provided admin support and even made our lovely brand. So big thanks to them. 
And 34SP continue to support us by grabbing the bill! Thanks team! Expect the usual amazing beer and pizza selection. 

There is a limit on numbers for this event - so if you can't make it, please let us know so someone else can come instead. You will need to have registered on the meet up group to come in I'm afraid. Sorry, we need to manage numbers. 

Doors will be opening at 6:30pm
