The use of AI has the potential to deliver major social and economic benefits, with profound impacts, many of which are yet to be understood. If we are to reap the benefits to be gained by technical advances in AI and make the world a better place, then we must also pay close attention to the societal impact of AI and to the challenges that it brings.
The King's Festival of Artificial Intelligence brings together speakers, exhibits, performances, demos and screenings in an exciting programme of events between 24 and 28 May 2023. The general public are invited to join academics, students, alumni and King’s cultural and industry partners to find out more about developments in artificial intelligence, and the challenges and opportunities that arise from them.
View the festival programme, and register to attend events (unless it is not required).
King's College London has a vibrant and expansive community in artificial intelligence (AI), with work taking place in every faculty across King's.

King’s College London is embarking on a year of programming from King’s Culture exploring AI at King’s. In May and June 2023, the King’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence is holding Bringing the Human to the Artificial, an 8-week exhibition in the Bush House Arcade at the King’s Strand Campus in collaboration with King’s Culture. This Festival of Artificial Intelligence sits alongside Bringing the Human to the Artificial. This activity will be followed by 'AI: Who's Looking After Me?' at Science Gallery London on the King’s Guy’s Campus (June 2023 – Jan 2024).
