Tiny Giant are an eclectic trio of creative technologists who fuse bold ideas and emerging tech to help businesses stand out.

In this talk, Kerry, Derek and Norts will take you on a lively exploration of the many ways they’ve been using machine learning and neural networks in their commercial and artistic endeavours.

From composing poems in the style of Sylvia Plath to creating the world’s first AI gin, they’ll give you an honest take on how AI can augment and inspire human thinking.

If you want to learn more about how minds and machines are working together to deliver more engaging, moving and inspiring creativity, this is the talk for you.
