Conversational Agents: Betty and The Narrator
Monday October 7th 2013 at the BCS London Office (near Covent Garden) from 6 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.
A demonstration of two innovative Chatbots with a lot of time available to allow attendees to gain hands-on experience with both. Our aim is to allow the maximum number of people to interact both with 'Betty', the reminiscence aid and 'The Narrator', which knows a lot about the history of HMS Ark Royal. Both systems are based on research carried out at Manchester Metropolitan University by Collette Curry and others.

A one-day training event for AI research students at Peterhouse College, Cambridge on Monday December 9th, the day before AI-2013 starts.

Our thirty-third annual international conference will be held in Cambridge, England from December 10th-12th 2013. Click here for details.
Please note that it is our strong intention that (as for many previous years) the proceedings of AI-2013 will be published in December, thus meeting the deadline for inclusion in the UK government's Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014).

DISCOUNTS FOR SGAI MEMBERS
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.
