INVITATION TO REGISTER: BCS SGAI: Real AI Day & Machine Intelligence Competition, October 7th, London, UK


The BCS AI Specialist Group (SGAI) is pleased to announce a day on
Artificial Intelligence in Action at the BCS London office on Monday
October 7th, which we think will be an eye-opener for those who are
not up to date with recent practical developments in this important
field.

The day starts with 'Real AI 2013' (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).  Organiser Dr
Gilbert Owusu, Head of Resource Management Technologies Research at 
BT
Research & Technology, says:  "Artificial Intelligence (AI) 
techniques
are in use in many business applications including fraud detection,
speech recognition, fault diagnosis, game planning and resource
management. Their applicability stems from the flexibility they
provide in modelling and solving real world problems. Real AI 2013
will provide delegates with insights (case studies) into using AI to
solve business problems.  The case studies will outline the business
problem and the steps taken to develop business applications of AI.
Real AI is aimed at those using AI or who may be interested in
understanding what AI can offer, and what it is doing right now."

Real AI 2013 features presentations on using fuzzy logic in real 
world
settings including industrial environments, mobile robots, ambient
intelligent environments video congestion control and intelligent
decision support applications; deriving insights from very large
datasets using predictive analytics and the technical challenges
around the use of this technology; practical applications of 
knowledge
management technologies in industry, including using natural language
understanding techniques to extract actionable information from
unstructured data; and  the challenges faced when researching,
creating, designing and evaluating AI-based solutions.

Real AI costs 90 for BCS members, 100 for non-members and only 50
for students.  Group discounts are available.  Full details are at
http://www.bcs-sgai.org/realai2013/.

Real AI will be followed at 6 p.m. by the eleventh annual BCS Machine
Intelligence Competition. This will feature live demonstrations of AI
systems, with a cash prize for the one that best shows 'progress
towards machine intelligence'. The Machine Intelligence Competition 
is
free to all, but prior registration is required for security reasons.
Full details are at http://www.bcs-sgai.org/micomp/.

Refreshments will be available between the two events.
