inSPIREd – Friday 26 July, 6.30pm-9.00pm
Rhodes House, Oxford, UK

Schmidt Science Fellows are taking over the iconic Rhodes House in the center of Oxford for inSPIREd: a special evening of engaging science talks and networking with science guests from the UK and overseas.

Join us as we transform this historic venue, nestled amongst Oxford’s dreaming spires, into a high-tech arena of cutting edge, interdisciplinary science.

The Future of Machine Learning – exploring implications for science and society – Tuesday 30 July, 4.00pm-5.30pm
Rhodes House, Oxford, UK

Panelists and speakers to include:

  • Professor Charlotte Deane, Head of the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford
  • Professor Ard Louis, Professor of Theoretical Physics, University of Oxford
  • Professor Heather Harrington, Turing Fellow, University of Oxford

How has machine learning accelerated scientific discovery and provided new insights in areas such as drug discovery, the workings of biological processes, and neural networks? How much further the machine learning revolution can take us and what it will it mean for science and society?

Machine learning or artificial intelligence seems to be proposed as both the answer to every scientific and social question and an omnipresent threat. What could the future really hold? What is the potential for machine learning to revolutionize scientific practice and shape our world?

Join distinguished expert panelists and the 2019 Schmidt Science Fellows to discuss and debate the future of machine learning and to separate fact from myth.
