Conference Day Two: 17 September 2019

9:15 AM Panel: Man vs. machine

The perceived wisdom is that as human and machine brains have quite different strengths and abilities, the combination of both capabilities will offer the most effective solutions.  But for how long will this remain the case?  Does the vast increase in data to be modeled; advanced algorithms and new deep learning techniques mean that a machine-only advantage will be reached in the near future?
