BQBC Montreal Conference on AI

I was across in Canada last week addressing the BQBC AI Conference in Montreal - a hotbed of Canadian (and global) AI activity. I ended up with two slots, one on the current regulation of AI landscape in the UK (just as well we've been to some of the APPG AI events and submitted evidence to the House of Lords Committee on AI), and may main one on my thoughts on AI - particularly our AI landscape diagram and our work at Daden on virtual tutors, life coaches and personas. There were some great talks from prominent researchers at McGill, and from Microsoft and Arup (on AI and smart cities). That said almost every talk bar mine was on narrow applications of machine learning.
