Next Event: ALT Winter Summit

Our winter summit will take place on Tuesday 12th December 2023. In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, ethics are paramount, especially as Artificial Intelligence (AI) becomes more available and accessible. The role of educators, technologists, senior managers and leaders in guiding ethical AI adoption has, therefore, never been more crucial.
