There are two great CSER-related events this week in Cambridge.
On Friday: Kay Firth-Butterfield, who leads Lucid AI’s ethical advisory panel, will be speaking about safe and beneficial development of AI, and its relevance to global challenges, for CSER’s public lecture at 4pm at the Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College. A great opportunity to get an industry perspective on “AI for the good of the many, not the few”. Attendance is free, but please register.
