Machine Learning or Learning From Machines?


Do we need to rethink our relationship with machines?

Day 3 of 'Digitalisation: The Transformation of Engineering' week

The Future of Technology Series is virtually back! In partnership with the Institute of Digital Engineering, we’re taking the Future of Technology Series online to host a week of short webinars. We’ll be covering the use of digital engineering in the automotive industry as part of our #FoTDigitalisationWeek, ‘Digitalisation: The Transformation of Engineering’.

In this session – we’ll be asking is the key to unlocking a new level of potential in engineering artificial? Traditionally, we think of machines learning from humans to perform tasks, but the future may involve a switch of teacher.

Join our expert panel as they discuss the opportunities for engineers to utilise advancements in AI to help make better decisions, by taking advantage of the complex algorithms which enable machines to come to conclusions in faster timeframes.

Digitalisation: The Transformation of Engineering Week

This event is just one of a week long series, covering the topic of digitalisation in the automotive industry.

We will be inviting experts across a range of sectors to share their knowledge on the hot-topics in the digital engineering agenda.

You can also attend the other events in the series:

Monday 18th May – Is the automotive industry in the slow lane?

Tuesday 19th May – Simulations: would you trust them with your life?

Wednesday 20th May – Machine learning or learning from machines?

Thursday 21st May – Immersive technology: tool or toy?
