The University of Birmingham Business Club will host a Breakfast Briefing on 19 September 2019 at Birmingham Research Park focussing on the role of AI in Industry, applications of AI in industrial contexts and the support offered to businesses looking to integrate AI into their processes. Join us over complimentary breakfast for this free event where delegates will have the opportunity to hear from a range of speakers from both academic and industry backgrounds:

Dr Mohan Sridharan from the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham, whose research interests include machine learning, computer vision and cognitive systems as applied to autonomous robots, will explore potential applications of these technologies in an industrial context.  In addition, Simeon Clow from the Hartree Centre, part of the Science and Technologies Facilities Council, will discuss the centre’s mission to transform UK competitiveness by accelerating the adoption of High Performance Computing (Modelling and Simulation), Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning & Deep Learning).

Finally, Paul Cornick from the University of Birmingham will highlight the support offered to businesses interested in potential applications of AI through the Science 2 Industry programme. The programme, hosted by the University of Birmingham, offers a unique pathway for businesses to access science and technology facilities available from both the Science and Technologies Facilities Council and Manufacturing Technology Centre. The programme aims to work with SMEs across all sectors to understand their technical and R&D-based challenges and connect them with appropriate facilities to achieve desired outcomes. In addition to AI, the programme can also support businesses interested in accessing facilities related to, among others: advanced imaging, material characterisation, digital manufacturing and computational chemistry.
