Hall 4 Auditorium 5


The amount of data generated by our connected societies is already proving to be a challenge to traditional big data analytics methodologies and this trend will only be compounded as data volumes grow exponentially. AI will greatly enhance our ability to extract meaningful insights from these overwhelmingly large datasets and will provide the catalyst for radical changes in how we address some of the most important challenges facing the world today. From scientific research to solving important practical problems, our societies will increasingly be assisted and enhanced by AI. Today, some the most compelling examples of these changes to come can be seen in medicine and clinical research, but as we further develop AI technology, we can expect its critical assistance in tackling climate change, critical resource management and population movements to name just a few. What insights can existing efforts in this space provide and how can future research into AI be directed to better assist us in addressing our shared challenges?
