Festival of AI

3-7 June 2024

Hosted by the AI and Data Analysis Network at Oxford Brookes University, UK


The aim of the Festival of AI is to showcase new developments in AI, machine learning and robotics and to support a debate on how new technologies are changing the way we live and work - and the skills and knowledge we'll need to thrive in the new era. 

The festival will run 3-7 June 2024 and involve a mix of in-person and online events. All sessions are free and open to the public, unless otherwise specified.  They will include panels on AI in science, business, law and the the arts, and offer hands-on, practical advice on how to maximise the benefits of the new technologies for employees, customers, and society as a whole. 

Saturday 8th of June will feature a companion event on Digital inequalities.
