About Artificial Intelligence Society (York A.I.)
We are one of the first societies in the UK to focus on Artificial Intelligence. We strongly believe the role of AI will soon not only revolutionise but take over large areas of most industries. Many people are not aware of the true potential of this technology and preference employers are giving on people intermediate knowledge of A.I. systems. Our goal is to provide University of York students with all the knowledge and tools necessary and also propel students from the University of York to some of the most sought careers in almost all career paths.
Announced on a regular bases through social media.
York A.I. is not a specialised society we have separate pipelines to propel students from different departments into careers that suit their interest, e.g.:
- For Psychology students we will be bridging the knowledge between their course and cognitive psychology and its uses in the development of new techniques for therapy.
- For Medicine students we will be providing a platform to start their own start-ups - e.g. it is using A.I. to find tumours invisible to the naked eye.
- For Law students we will be holding debates and lectures from industry specialists who are forming new legislation on the morals and ethics of prosecution when A.I. is involved - "who to blame when a self-driving car causes an accident".
We will also be holding routine Machine Learning & Python tutorials: these tutorials will be for absolute beginners. No mathematical background is required. We will teach you how to create Intelligence and will make you implement some basic ML algorithms using Python.
Socials and Networking: Finally we will also have socials where we meet for drinks and have the chance of meeting interesting and like-minded people!
