IoD Jersey Launches Innovation Series

A deep dive into Artificial Intelligence will launch the Jersey Institute of Directors Innovation Series in January 2020.

The Innovation Series is a brand new format being delivered by IoD Jersey with support from lead sponsor JT. Four pioneering, technology focused events will be run throughout the year to inform, educate and develop knowledge of this transformative area of business.

The first breakfast seminar in the Series will take place on Tuesday 14th January at The Royal Yacht. The event is being led by Chair of the IoD Jersey Technology Sub Committee, David Brown, and is entitled: ‘There Is Nothing Artificial About Intelligence’.

David will take the audience through a brief history of robotics and human augmented processes across a wide range of disciplines, from finance, to government, to the sky and back. He will discuss how the technology is deployed and the benefits it can bring. With over 30 years of experience in automation covering testing, application transfer, cleansing, and on demand automation, he will explore how we can make good use of such designs and how we still have some things to learn.

Daragh McDermott, Corporate Affairs Director, JT, says:

JT is delighted to be sponsoring this ground-breaking IoD Jersey Innovation Series, which will be the first of its kind in Jersey. We will be looking to the future as the Series discusses AI, Automation, Internet of Things, FinTech and much more. As the first jurisdiction in the world to have 100 per cent full-fibre connectivity to all premises, Jersey is perfectly placed to be having advanced discussions on technology and acting as a testbed for innovation. We are looking forward to engaging the local business community and IoD members in these discussions and the event with David Brown will be an excellent launch to the Series – we are confident you will be captivated by this first seminar.
