Back in February, I was invited to speak on AI & Automation at the Silicon Brighton event covering just this subject. My session was committed to video, accessible elsewhere on this site.
Then I was asked to repeat the talk for the Silicon Brighton NHS Fundraiser event held live and online on 7th May 2020. So I decided to upgrade the narrative and expand on some of the points I felt I’d not explained sufficiently the first time around. It was well-received on the day, generating a lot of conversation around automation. One viewer, Óskar Holm, said “very impressive @Jon Silver, look forward to having this video posted, because I need to send it to some people I know.”
So here in all its 47-minute glory is that presentation. It serves as an introduction to all the available automation technologies, how they all fit together, what’s possible and practical with real-world examples and even costings, and an exploration of all the risks and rewards. It’s targeted at a non-technical, business-focused audience, but techies could benefit from watching it too. Enjoy! And let us know what you think!
