The SGAI Virtual Seminar Series is a new series of evening Zoom events, open to all, which eventually we intend to run monthly from October to June, normally on a Wednesday evening from 6 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. (UK time). Participation is free and no prior registration is needed. Further details are available at Copies of speakers' slides etc. are also available from that address when provided.

SGAI recently collaborated with the BCS Consultancy Group on a panel discussion on 'How consultants can leverage the AI transformation in the industry'. This was a free 'hybrid' event available both face-to-face in the BCS London Office and remotely by videoconference on Thursday October 12th 2023. A videorecording of the event is available here.
