Festival of Artificial Intelligence returns to King's College London, 21 – 25 May 2024

Discover artificial intelligence at King’s College London during this free five-day series of events.


The King’s Festival of Artificial Intelligence returns this year with five days of events showcasing the latest advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and their impact on society. Building on the successes of last year’s festival, the King’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence presents an exciting line up of academic and industry experts participating in public lectures, panel discussions, lightning talks, film screenings, demos and workshops.

From Tuesday 21 May to Saturday 25 May, King’s Strand campus will host a range of audiences, inviting them to participate in urgent questions about AI in a variety of domains including philosophy, social justice, healthcare, industry, education, sustainability, responsibility, creativity, and intelligence itself.

AI holds significant promise in delivering social and economic benefits, the full impacts of which are not yet understood. We are in an era of profound fascination with the opportunities and challenges that arise from these technologies and AI is a regular part of discussions about our present and future. The King’s Festival of Artificial Intelligence invites diverse communities both within and beyond the university to engage in conversations about the transformative potential of AI.

Highlights of the festival include

The Festival of Artificial Intelligence is about opening King's doors and sharing our knowledge on this transformative technology with the wider community. By bringing together experts alongside members of the public, we aim to have an inclusive dialogue examining both the opportunities and challenges presented by AI. King's is committed to advancing AI responsibly for the greater good of society. I encourage everyone to join us and be part of this vital conversation.
