Events - March 2020

The name Paganini conjures as much myth as history for musicians and violinists.  Portraits reveal a gaunt, ghostly man, and much of the music he composed asks for seemingly impossible feats of time and distance.  Join violinist Benjamin Sung for a performance of Paganini's Opus 1: the 24 Caprices for violin solo.  Taken together, these works are a testament to the potential of human achievement - in creativity, in expression, in technique, and in art.

The explosive progress of Artificial Intelligence and deep learning systems have given rise to numerous applications in the health care space. Cancer diagnosis, drug discovery and biometric tracking are but some of the areas being tackled through second wave AI. Such applications, however, are fraught with challenging questions around patient privacy, data bias, and ethical decision-making: to what extent are engineers responsible for the behaviour of the life-and-death applications they design?
