About the members' page

SGAI, the British Computer Society Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence, was founded in June 1980 by Professor Donald Michie, a leading British AI pioneer and a wartime colleague of Alan Turing at Bletchley Park. The Group's mission is: "To foster achievement, capability and awareness in both business and research in Artificial Intelligence, and to promote the interests of the related community". It is one of Europe's longest established groups working to support the community of artificial intelligence developers and users.

SGAI has organised an annual international conference since 1981, as well as colloquia, evening lectures other events of many kinds. It has been a member of ECCAI, the European Co-ordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence since 1992.

A substantial proportion of the Group's membership is from industry. It provides a valuable forum in which the academic and industrial AI communities can meet.

The Group covers technical advances in AI technology and shows how this leading edge technology has been applied to solve business problems.

SGAI is a member of ECCAI (the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence) and this entitles our members to substantial discounts on events run by other national AI societies across Europe, as well as by ECCAI itself. For example the ECAI conference ECAI-12 held in Montpellier in August 2012 offered a 100 euro discount on the regular rate and a 30 euro discount on the student rate for members of BCS-SGAI.

Non-BCS-members may wish to join BCS-SGAI just to take advantage of such discounts. This is easy to do by first joining the BCS. Further information is available from here. After joining the parent body, joining SGAI can be done very rapidly via the BCS website.
