Why Artificial Intelligence (AI)? And what does Cambridge have to offer? 

Our researchers in a multitude of different disciplines are creating innovative applications of AI in diverse areas. Cambridge is unique in that brings mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers together, alongside basic, translational and clinical scientists. Cambridge philosophers and humanists are asking fundamental questions about the ethics, trust and humanity of AI system design. We are well placed both geographically and academically to lead the revolution that is happening in this exciting field, specifically in relation to neuroscience. 

Who should attend?

Academics at all levels of their career working across neuroscience, engineering, mathematics and computer science. We particularly encourage early career researchers to attend and present their work at this unique event. To this end, we are offering heavily subsidised all-inclusive registration fees.

Industry professionals working across the neuroscience-technology-biomedical spectrum. Attending ABC2019 will provide the perfect opportunity for you to promote your organisation to a passionate audience of scientists across a wide range of disciplines. Furthermore, it will provide excellent networking opportunities allowing you to establish relationships with partners, potential employees and customers.
