AGENDA

North Staffordshire BCS in association with Hack Keele is excited to bring you a talk (15th Nov) followed by a hackathon (20th & 21st Nov) on the theme “IT for Social Good”.

The latest AI and automation have found their way into many aspects of our lives and have drawn some strong criticism around civil rights and privacy, but what about the increasing benefits for society?

Our guest speaker on the 15th will be Professor Dorothy Monekosso, an eminent scientist in the field of assistive technology and medical research. Her work with sufferers of cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia makes use of IT in ways that have a positive benefit to society. We will learn about Dorothy’s work and the part IT can play in understanding medical conditions or assisting people with limitations.

Our talk will be followed by our branch AGM, so at that point, you can choose to either leave or stay on to find out more about our branch level activities or even become more involved.

The event is finished.
