On Tuesday 5 November you can hear about the future of AI at I’ll Be Back South West – creativity, AI and ads.

Other events cover hot topics such as New World farming, AI in health and care, and SEO tips for digital marketing.
Nick Sturge, director, Engine Shed, said: “Bristol is a hub for some of the most exciting tech businesses and projects currently happening in Europe. The diversity and scope of activity happening here sets it apart from other places in the UK.”
“Tech is an industry that is open to anybody and we want to attract people from across the city regardless of their backgrounds and open up a world of opportunities and careers. We want to share these opportunities and create sustainable economic growth for all.”
