The prestigious annual Turing Lecture has visited Belfast for the last two years. It was recently decided that Belfast would become a permanent fixture for the lecture (along with London and Cardiff) for as long as the Belfast Science Festival continued to be held. Since the Science Festival has been growing larger and more popular year by year, I think it’s safe to say that Turing will be going to Belfast for many years.
Next year’s speaker will be Dr. Guruduth Bandar, VP of Cognitive Computing at IBM Research. Dr Bandar led the team responsible for Watson, so this should be a fantastic talk and very relevant to IoTA. I can hardly wait but I guess I have to.
