The first artificial intelligence (AI) conference in Northern Ireland will inform business leaders about the benefits of AI in the workplace, it's been claimed.

AI Con on November 28 will connect global AI leaders from companies including Google, Amazon and Microsoft with the AI community here.

Led by Tom Gray, chief technology officer of Kainos, the conference at Europa Hotel will discuss developments in the sector. It will also consider how AI is transforming how businesses operate.

Mr Gray said: "AI Con will provide a key platform for discussion and debate around how artificial intelligence is changing our world.

"This is an area of rapid growth in the technology sector and there is an incredible amount of work being done locally to move it from research, into business and job creation.

"The conference is aimed at business leaders who would like to know more about how AI can improve their business, and also those from a technical and engineering background who are interested in how the latest AI research can be applied in a practical way."

Lorraine Acheson of Innovate UK, one of the sponsors at the inaugural event, added that the conference will "open up conversation between technology and business".
