The theme of this year's UK Screen Technology Conference is the rapidly maturing area of Virtual Reality and the emergence of Artificial Intelligence.
We will hear about the challenges of taking VR and 360-video mainstream, the scope for machine learning in media content businesses and what lessons can we learn from those working in the AI space in other tech industries.
