An event on artificial intelligence is taking place in Oxford this Saturday where five ‘world leading’ experts will chime in to offer their thoughts.

Researchers from the likes of Google Deepmind, Imperial College London and X-Chem will share their insight on the topic ‘will artificial intelligence replace us’ at St John’s College.

The event is organised by the Muslims Researchers’ Network, co-hosted by the Oxford University Islamic Society and will take place from 10am to 4pm.

Network chairman Mohamady El-Gaby commented: “The AI revolution has been likened to the industrial revolution in its scale and impact on human life.

“Speakers working at the forefront of AI research will tackle the tough question surrounding AI head on, including how AI research is changing the world and what Islam can bring to the table.”

Speakers include Noor Shaker, an inventor and entrepreneur who has been named a top leader in AI healthcare by Forbes, and Junaid Mubeen, author of ‘Mathematical Intelligence: What we have that machines don’t’ (who is also a Countdown octochamp).

Other speakers are Islem Rekik, Ali Eslami and Mohsan Alvi who have interests in the brain, virtual reality and computer vision, respectively.

Tickets can be purchased via the Muslim Researchers’ website online.
