In this second session, we will explore how machine learning/AI could actually be used to detect how an intervention is working, how it makes users feel and how automation could take the strain to let human carers do what only humans can do. 
We'll open the session at 5.30 with expert speakers, followed by a short Q&A / panel. Then, we'll break to pick up a drink and some nibbles and those who would like to, can join the speakers and hosts for a round table discussion around the subject to share ideas and issues we face to deliver effective services. 

NB - this is the event we had to reschedule due to the tragic events around us on 22nd March.
