Computers that can learn are able to solve some problems that humans can’t. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is used in research in Dundee and around the world. In Dundee, computers have helped us understand how cells in our body work, and how this can be applied in medicine.

But the stories we hear about AI are not always positive, with the use and misuse of personal data, for example the Cambridge Analytica scandal, generating lots of headlines. So what’s the real story?

This discussion with Prof Geoff Barton (University of Dundee) will showcase his research in biology and health, whilst considering the social challenges in how we use AI.

This is a free event and everyone is welcome. There is no need to book in advance but arrive early to avoid disappointment.
