Turing Events (June 2021): Turing Lecture: Engineering the future of medicine, Atlas of AI, Breaking the code: Alan Turing's legacy in 2021
1 June 2021
Date: Tuesday 8 June 2021
Time: 15:00 - 16:30
Audience: This is a technical talk, suitable for researchers in the field.
Summary: Developments in machine learning mean that researchers now have access to a range of automatic methods for interpreting biomedical data, helping healthcare professionals to better diagnose, treat and monitor their patients. In this lecture, biomedical engineer and 2021 Edward J. McCluskey Technical Achievement Award winner, René Vidal, will take us through his work at the forefront of this area, introducing applications ranging from the microscopic to the macroscopic.

Time: 12:00 - 13:00
Kate Crawford is a leading scholar of the social and political implications of artificial intelligence. In this special event, Turing Fellow and Women in Data Science and AI project lead, Judy Wajcman, will host a fireside chat and audience Q&A with Kate Crawford to uncover the damaging effects of the global networks underpinning AI technology, and how our technical systems are designed to serve and intensify existing systems of power, as detailed in her book of the same name. Registrants for the event will receive a 30% discount code for Atlas of AI when ordering through the Yale UK website. Register to attend

Time: 12:30 - 14:00
This free event will explore what we can learn from Alan Turing's legacy, from the perspective of the national institute of data science and AI created in his name, and what that means in 2021, picking out the positive action points that we can take forward to better science and society as a whole.
We'll be asking our panellists why Alan Turing means so much to them, in order to understand the huge reach he's had across so many scientific fields.
