Thursday, 1 June 2023

We are excited to be back in London for our first event since 2019 and looking forward to seeing familiar faces as well as those, recently arrived. Join us in Central London on 8 June for an engaging evening focused on the topic of "Trustworthy and Generative AI," exclusively for graduates and friends of the University of Limerick.

As the world embraces artificial intelligence at an unprecedented pace, understanding its implications and ensuring its trustworthiness becomes crucial. And so, we are thrilled to have Dr Martin Cuneen, lecturer in Data Analytics and Risk Governance at UL, as our keynote speaker sharing his thoughts on the subject. Dr Cunneen’s research and teaching often focuses on empowering financial and technology professionals to better understand and leverage data and AI innovations. He is part of Ireland’s prestigious national AI Master's program where he continues to teach industry professionals on addressing AI Risk, Ethics, and Governance. With an impressive track record of over two decades in teaching and research spanning diverse domains, including philosophy, applied ethics, Governance and Risk theory, Insurance, data and AI governance. Dr Cunneen has worked on fascinating topics ranging from Autonomous Vehicles to his present work on the AntiFinTer project that leverages AI to investigate terrorist financing activities. By employing research-led teaching methodologies, Dr Cunneen remains committed to delivering industry-focused education that equips professionals with practical and relevant knowledge, and to empower them to navigate the complex challenges and responsibilities entailed in the realm of AI."

We are honoured to welcome UL President Prof Kerstin Mey as our special guest for this event. Prof Mey eagerly anticipates meeting our London-based graduates for the first time, sharing updates and plans for the institution. Joining her will be Laura Ryan, Director of Marketing, Communications, and Public Affairs at UL, who looks forward to personally welcoming you to this event.

This gathering provides a great opportunity to learn about and discuss AI and its social impact and reconnect with fellow graduates and your alma mater. Set in the elegant venue of 41 Portland Place, this event offers a platform to expand your knowledge, exchange ideas, and forge valuable connections within the UL community. We look forward to welcoming you and experiencing an enlightening evening together!
