Tech Crunch’s latest Disrupt expo hit London on the 5th and 6th of December, attracting tech industry leaders such as Niklas Zennström (Co-founder of Skype), Mustafa Suleyman (Co-founder of DeepMind) and Amat Yusuf (Founder of City Mapper).
The Unmanned Life (UL) team was invited to take part in Disrupt by John Biggs the TCD East Coast Editor and were 1 of only 4 startups featuring AI technology in Hardware Alley.
As soon as the expo got underway there was no signs of the agenda ever letting up, a tight schedule jam packed full of the worlds brightest tech heads dominated every second of the itinerary. One of the talks the UL team found particularly interesting came from Mustafa Suleyman, the co-founder of DeepMind.
DeepMind is a company that focuses on constructing AI to eventually solve complex social problems that we face as humans, such as food distribution and how we are going to deal with the effects of global warming.
DeepMind shares some similarities with Unmanned Life in its approach to solving inherently complex problems that traditionally have only been made worse with human-centric solutions.
In the same way you would think a large staff of logistics professionals would be needed to organise the shipping of natural produce, one is likely to think an expansive team of factory workers would be needed to log and store parcels for a postal delivery company.
Because we are now in the 4th industrial revolution where we are able to use data to fuel automation both the afore mentioned tasks can and should be achieved explicitly with autonomous and intelligent tech.
Here is a short video from blogger and tech enthusiast Shabbir Naqvi who interviewed Kim Clement our Technology Director at Unmanned Life:
