You probably read a lot about artificial intelligence (AI) in the media, and wonder: how does it exactly work? In what way will it influence my life?

This workshop is meant to help you get a better understanding of AI, machine learning and the ethical questions that rise when you implement these technologies in society.

During hands-on exercises you’ll get the chance to play with demos, train your own machine learning model based on facial recognition and design your own creations with Generative Adversarial Networks. Cutting edge applications will be presented and we will have discussions about ethical concerns surrounding the technology.

All of this will be done without any coding or math. Everyone is welcome and able to join. Please bring your own laptop! The programme is in English.

There are limited places available for this workshop. Buy a ticket via the link above. Admission is € 5, including a drink.
