Living with Machine’s AI Beyond STEM: digital skills to unleash the power of data science and AI for all online panel hit the small screens on 6 June 2023. This virtual gathering, hosted by the Turing and supported by Arts & Humanities Research Council, was a triumph, showcasing the interdisciplinary promise of technology and non- science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Distinguished panellists from various fields including digital humanities, linguistics, zoology, and more, took centre stage to delve into data science and AI in non-STEM domains. Their insightful discussions shed light on both the challenges and the exciting opportunities that arise, especially around skills. They painted a bright future for disciplines such as Digital Humanities.

Watch again, or for the first time:

Over 100 attendees signed up to the event from around the globe, making it a truly international occasion. Much to my relief as host, once we got the technology unbunged, the audience questions poured in and the insightful discussion could have continued late into the night. This underscores the thirst for knowledge and the potential for data science and AI.

It was a pleasure to host the evening, with such a fascinating panel of individuals we can all learn a great deal from. Watch this space for follow-on activities!
