9 November 2022

AI Con returns next month to examine the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in society and its role in securing a healthier, safer, and more sustainable future.

Hosted by Kainos, AI Con will take place at Titanic Belfast 1 December and will also be broadcast live for over 300 attendees including those involved in AI application, policy, and regulation across Europe, the UK, and the US.

The conference will explore the continued evolution of AI as it heads towards mainstream adoption, and ways to responsibly and sustainably harness it’s potential to support progress across all areas of business and public life.




Robert Smith, director of AI and data science at Digital Catapult UK, will deliver the keynote address to over 300 attendees. A widely respected leader in the field of AI, Smith authored Rage Inside the Machine, which was shortlisted for the 2020 Business Book Awards, and has worked for over 30 years to improve the effects of AI on society.

At Digital Catapult, the UK authority on advanced digital technology, Smith works with high-growth potential start-ups and sits on the AI Ethics Committee, working to ensure responsible and ethical development of AI-enabled products and services.

Speakers at the full-day conference, which is sponsored by Ulster University, Digital Catapult, Matrix NI, Allstate NI, and Innovate UK, include Jacob Turner, a leading barrister and internationally recognised expert on the governance of AI and author of Robot Rules: Regulating Artificial Intelligence.

A UNESCO and UN Human Rights Council speaker, Turner advises on some of the leading AI cases and consults with governments, including advising the Chinese government and military on the implications of AI on national security.

AI Con will bring together those involved in policy, regulation, application, and every senior technology role in between to get to the heart of AI’s relationship with data usage and privacy when it takes place in Belfast next month.
