Is there a better way to start 2024 than an informal meeting where FITCE.be members exchange the latest news, trends (and gossips)? Yes, by adding some extra inspiration! That's why we invited Jeroen Baert (Nerdland) for a critical keynote on Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Jeroen Baert graduated as a Computer Scientist and did research in the Computer Graphics lab of the KU Leuven. As a comedian (Belgian Improv League) and science communicator he’s part of Lieven Scheire’s Nerdland project, known from the popular Belgian science podcast. He’s a regular contributor for radio and TV and is currently touring with critical keynotes on Artificial Intelligence, Metaverses and other hot topics.
You can expect a keynote with content that is scientifically backed, but especially meant to entertain and inspire. What is Artificial Intelligence and what is it not? What is generative AI? How do ChatGPT and Dall-E work? What is the impact of AI on our society and the way we work and gather information? What does the future of AI look like? How can I use AI usefully? You will find an answer to all these questions in this lecture, which examines the current hype around AI in a humorous and critical manner.
This event is free for employees of the Supporting Company Members and Company Members of FITCE.be, but registration is required. If you bring your partner, please make a second registration with the same email address.
