Guest Speaker Nicholas Oliver, Founder of people.io from Founders Factory will provide his expert insight on the issues of data privacy.
'Giving a person ownership of their personal data will be one of the most important technical and societal challenges of this century. As artificial intelligence continues to progress, we can already see a world where personalisation of services has become manipulation of individuals - often using data that has been collected and used without a person's knowledge. These are challenges of today, not tomorrow, so what is the solution?'
Five technology companies addressing core problems for B2B customers in automotive and industrials, assisting child learning through brainwave technology, and providing crowdsourced outdoor advertising solutions are raising between £250k and £750 in SEIS / EIS funding.
