Unless you’ve been living on the moon, you’ll have felt the world of work and your daily life dramatically changing in the last 5 years. With the growth of AI, increasing automation, new ‘agile’ ways of growing a business and increasingly flexible ways of working, business is being shaped by technology all around the world.
That’s why we’re embracing technology for business at Bath Digital 2018. There’s less than 3 months until the start of the festival and we’ve got the inside track on some of the best events ahead.

For the future focused:
AI vs. Human creativity
Tuesday 23rd October, 10.15am
Are you worried about losing your job to a robot? Fear not. AI expert Rob McGowan explores where AI meets human creativity, asking whether AI can ever truly be considered autonomously creative and examining a future where AI is used as a tool to build connections in society and enable new ideas.
Stick around, because after the talk you can expect a hot debate around the growing use of AI within our lives, covering points from the talk and the ethics of the AI uses in the future.
Whatever your interests, there’s something for everyone at Bath Digital Festival.
