State of the Art: Artificial Intelligence

Thu 22 Mar 2018 | 2-6pm | FREE | FACT | Liverpool

Our third State of the Art event will bring together SMEs from the Liverpool City Region to hear from business and academic experts about Artificial Intelligence.


It will also give you the opportunity to network over the implications of these technology areas and to input into the design and content of future events within the LCR Activate project.


Our ‘State of the Art’ event series looks to demonstrate not just the cutting edge of technological realms, but to showcase the numerous direct, easily-accessible competitive advantages to be gained from employing them.
