Realising the full potential of UK computer science

21 February 2018 - Lunch meeting - Login for venue

Professor Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the World Wide Web

Artificial intelligence and multiple other computer science developments are transforming life in the 21st Century. Oxford University already ranks highly amongst the top universities teaching and researching computer science, and is now committed to a major expansion of this work. This offers significant potential benefits for the university and also for the whole economy of the UK.  The effort is being spearheaded by Christ Church, who recently appointed Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, as a Professorial Research Fellow. Come and discuss with Oxford professors Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Roger Davies and Mike Wooldridge how developments in computer science will further transform many aspects of economic and social life, and how the university is meeting this challenge. They will also explain how commercial organisations can participate by sponsoring parts of this ambitious programme and the research collaboration and recruitment opportunities available for sponsors.
