World-leading experts in cyber security and AI (artificial intelligence) are among an international cast of top scientists, performers and big thinkers heading to Cheltenham Science Festival from 5-10 June.
The Festival theme is Connected : Divided exploring what connects and divides us as a species – from personal relationships, health and language to the law, global politics and the universe. Over 280 leading experts in the fields of psychology, biology, technology, engineering, anthropology, health and current affairs will make their way to Cheltenham for the six-day event.
Free interactive zones will be on hand to engage all ages and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
The Festival’s brand-new Cyber Zone will bring the public face to face with innovative organisations, including DeepMind – the world-leading AI research company. The Maker Shack returns by popular demand along with The Discover Zone, The Sphere, the EDF Energy Zone, the GE Pavilion and Hartpury Science Hub. More free activities include a sky diving display from the RAF Falcons, the Woodland Trust Nature Detectives, and two free Science Trails.
During the week over 6,500 school children are expected on site to take part in these activities, with many more children visiting with their families over the weekend.
