Often referred to as the real-life James Bond, the former Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) and decorated veteran will be sharing his vast knowledge from the front line.

He will share key insights based on his experience of defending the country against state sponsored-hacking, cyber terrorism, identifying threats in the current landscape, and what the next major trends are likely to be.

Garry Kasparov

Chess grandmaster and author Garry Kasparov first experienced the potential of AI during his famous matches against IBM’s supercomputer Deep Blue. Ever since, he has studied the evolution and implications of AI, he is also currently Avast’s security ambassador.

Kasparov will be talking about Ethics and Responsibility in the Age of Artificial Intelligence. What's more, after he gets off the stage, he will be playing several games of chess at the same time, against a selection of DTX visitors (and the clock!).

Dr Hannah Fry

You may recall Dr. Hannah Fry hitting the news recently after solving the mathematical equation ‘8/2(2+2) =? that sent the internet into turmoil. The Associate Professor in the Mathematics of Cities at UCL will talk about the differences between human intelligence and artificial intelligence, while examining why data scientists are trying to replicate elements of the human brain in AI systems.

After packing out the Keynote Theatre at IP EXPO 2017, Stuart Russell, the Godfather of Modern Artificial Intelligence, is back!

Using a Bayesian approach, Russell is a pioneer in the understanding and uses of AI, its long-term future and its relation to humanity.
