Description

Since the dawn of civilization, humans have been creating technologies to aid them in their lives. But more recently we have seen the speed of change and impact of computational technologies rapidly increasing. In particular, with the rapid growth of computational devices being used in almost all aspects of human activity, we have seen an explosion in the volumes of data, both structured and unstructured, being generated in a range of domains.
This talk discusses some of these trends in the domains of data science, big data and artificial intelligence and provide examples of applications. The transformational power of data, but also some of the issues and challenges arising by using large volumes of data and advanced analytics techniques are discussed. This includes complex ethical and other considerations that may have a profound impact on individuals, groups and the wider society.
