Recent advances in AI, machine learning and robotics means that machines of all varieties are embedded in our everyday lives. An increasing number of interactions in our work, social and family lives are now collaborations with machines. This conference will showcase the results of ground-breaking research and innovation carried out at the University of Oxford in this field. It will present the most recent results from the Human-Machine Collaboration Programme, supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
COVID-19 Response - Stay well this winter. Your actions matter.
Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. As we head into the winter months and spend more time indoors, everyone needs to continue to take individual responsibility for minimising risks to our community. In particular, you should:
- Wear a face covering (unless exempt) in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet
- Let fresh air in indoors: keeping windows and doors open increases ventilation and significantly reduces the spread of COVID-19 – please keep them open, particularly in areas which are poorly ventilated
- Get your booster jab as soon as you’re eligible, and get a free flu jab if you can
- Get tested and self-isolate if required
It is important that everyone is considerate and follows health guidance. Even if you don’t feel at risk yourself, please respect others who feel more vulnerable.
Adhering to the guidance will also stop the spread of flu and other respiratory infections. This is particularly important this year because fewer people will have built up natural immunity during the pandemic, and because research shows that those who get flu and COVID-19 at the same time are more likely to become seriously ill.
See the University's Health pages for more information.
