Professor Stephen Roberts explores AI in Higgs

Held in the Great Hall on Monday 12 November, 'The age of intelligent algorithms: 21st century industry, commerce and science’ looked at the ways in which the rapid rise of artificial intelligence as impressive as it is frightening.


From playing games against us to making decisions about us and displacing us in the job market, we cannot escape the impact AI is having on our everyday lives. As well as the social impact of algorithms, AI is leading a quiet revolution in science and industry, helping make commercial processes more efficient and enable us to learn more about the world around us. Professor Roberts’ talk looked at some of the good and the bad of this revolution, with a focus on the practical transformations intelligent algorithms are having in science and industry.
