WHO’S IN OUR NETWORK? – DAVID GLEICHER
At our recent Talent Innovation Masterclass in London, we were delighted to welcome David Gleicher – Senior Programme Manager for Science, Technology and Health at the World Economic Forum – as one of our guest speakers. David gave a great talk on the topic of disruptive science which covered two of our favourite topics – Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience. We were fascinated by his description of the latest advances in AI, particularly when it comes to the development of skills we typically think of as “human”. We were really pleased that David was able to speak to our FoW members and are happy to have someone with insight into such a fast-moving area of science in our network.
You can watch David’s talk on The Hot Spots YouTube channel – have a look and tweet @HSpotM to tell us what you think.
