Artificial Intelligence (AI): overview and examples
Dr Moschini's talk will offer a brief overview of the journey that has led to the current AI landscape and an outline of the various types of AI technologies. It will consider examples of key areas of application and trends for future developments. The presentation will also highlight benefits and challenges of AI, as well as implications for users and stakeholders.

Artificial Intelligence in Care Homes: Promissory Discourses and Ageism
As AI is increasingly used in care environments, with promises of addressing systemic issues such as alleviating loneliness among residents, it is critical to consider its potential role in enhancing age-related bias and social inequalities in later life.  In this talk, Dr Neves will present insights from her research exploring what ideas of ageing underline practices and perceptions of AI amongst AI developers and care home staff/advocates - to consider whether and how the use of AI in care homes may contribute to ageism.
