Robots are going to take our jobs eventually – in fact it’s already started. This is a comical, yet real, look at what the future looks likes and ways to future-proof yourself and your business.

AI has come on leaps and bounds over the last decade. It’s reached the mainstream - and gone through a hype cycle, whilst taking advantage of faster processors, more powerful machines and scaled up data collation. We are seeing a ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ powered by AI and Machine Learning, which is touching all facets of life.

In this lecture Anne-Marie will explore some of the current limitations of the implementations of AI, the implications of a severe lack of diversity throughout the development and creation processes and specifically what this means in the workplace.

About the speaker

Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE is a prodigy in every sense of the word. Aged 11, she was the youngest girl ever to pass A-level Computing, and was just 20 years old when she received her Master’s Degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Oxford. Since then, she has forged an enviable CV, including positions at Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard and Deutsche Bank. Then there are the Honorary Doctorates from Open University, Glasgow Caledonian University, Kent University & Bristol University and an Honorary Fellowship at Keble College, Oxford.

It is this wealth of experience and pioneering spirit that led her to co-found the STEMettes, an award-winning social initiative dedicated to inspiring and promoting the next generation of young women in the STEM sectors. Since its inception 6 years ago, it has exposed more than 40,000 girls across Europe to Anne-Marie’s vision for a more diverse and balanced science and tech community.

A recognised thought-leader in the technology arena, Anne-Marie is a renowned champion and inspiration for women looking to find a role in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). She delivers keynotes at leading companies and organisations all over the world, is listed as one of the BBC’s 100 inspirational and innovative women, Forbes Top 50 Global Women in Tech and an ELLE Magazine ‘Disruptor’.
