Keynote speaker

Jason Bradbury: 30 Days of AI

Jason is going to tell you all about his ‘30 Days of AI’, where he entrusted his every daily decision to artificial intelligence - for an entire month. In this fascinating experiment, he explores the potential benefits and risks of the machine learning revolution that is poised to affect how all of us live and work.

Through the examination of this thought-provoking experience, Jason illuminates the intriguing results of everything from mundane tasks - meal planning and workouts - to ambitious pursuits like creating a profitable side business or achieving financial independence – all seen through the prism of deep learning and Artificial Intelligence services.

Jason has been a student of AI for the last fifteen years. He’s interviewed AI researchers in Japan and Silicon Valley and at IBM’s New England campus, with a particular interest in the use of machine learning and robotics – including helping to create and train a robot to perform live stand-up comedy.

Drawing from his experience as a leading tech authority and his personal journey to balance work and life, Jason will offer insightful perspectives on the future of technology, its implications for leadership and business strategy along with the ethical and philosophical implications of the new age of AI.
