AI & Machine Learning focus for fifth special interest group

Silverstone Technology Cluster

13th March 2020

Now is the perfect time for the STC to form a new special interest group (SIG) focusing on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, says CEO Pim van Baarsen.

A formation meeting was held with interested companies in January and plans are now advancing to determine who the SIG’s ‘champions’ will be.

Once officially formed, AI & Machine Learning will add to the STC’s four other SIGs: Autonomous, Connected, Electrified & Shared (ACES); Digital & Advanced Manufacturing (DAM); Design, Simulation & Metrology; Wearable Technology.

“As with everything we do, the focus of our SIGs is guided by our membership,” said Pim.

“We have members such as Eatron installing AI in their battery management systems (BMS) or Velocity with their software applications in admin functionality.

“Co-bots, software algorithms… the applications are far reaching. And while it’s an area of interest that perhaps wasn’t such a hot topic five years ago, in the last 12 months it has come up more and more in conversation.”

Pim added: “Our formation meeting was very good, especially as everyone contributed and commented on how they believe we can develop the SIG.

“AI and machine learning is very relevant to lots of different sectors and technologies that our members are working in, so now is the right time for this fifth SIG which will further promote the STC’s expertise and thought leadership for the UK’s tech industry.”
