The British Computer Society Specialist Group on Artificial

practical focus aimed at business and industry.

This is a low-cost event: the standard delegate rate is 75 (+VAT),
with a  special student rate of 50 (+VAT). A discounted group rate of
50 (+VAT) per  delegate is also available for groups of three or more

The event will feature talks from leading exponents and case studies
outlining  practical applications of AI from a wide range of
application domains. There  will be speakers from manufacturing,
semantic search, medical imaging,  autonomous vehicles, policing,
games and simulation.

The first Real AI Day will take place on Thursday 17th December
