KES Talks

KES Talks is a new event presented by KES International, that combines online webinars with wider community networking. Every month, an invited speaker will present research, projects, and give insight into all manner of knowledge intensive subjects, completely free of charge to the KES community. This is then followed by an open Q&A session, where anyone attending is free to ask a question that may be put forward to the speaker.

In the future we hope to include a post-talk networking session, where all those who attend will have the opportunity to make connections and discuss potential collaborations, as well as meet the speaker themselves.

The aim of KES Talks is to bring those working or studying in knowledge intensive subjects together to help form connections and encourage collaboration within our community. It can also provide an insight for those who have not yet attended a KES event to experience an invited session free of charge and with easy accessibility. Our first two editions of KES Talks have already gone down as a huge success, bringing together over 100 academics, doctors, students and engineers to learn from our speakers about these subjects:

November 2021

Speaker: Prof. Anne Hĺkansson
Affiliation: UiT - The Arctic University of Norway
Subject: AI in Cyber-Physical Systems - when can fully autonomous CPS in Society be achieved?

December 2021

Speaker: Prof. Robert J. Howlett
Affiliation: University of Bournemouth, UK
Subject: Smart Energy Systems for a Low Carbon Future

You can watch back any previous KES Talks you may have missed using the new KES International YouTube channel, which can be found

NOTE - Newest editions of KES Talks will be added to the KES International YouTube channel around a week after the live event.
