General Theme: The theme of our symposium is our awareness of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how AI will shape our future. AI is now in our schools, workplaces, homes and public spaces and it is only recently that we are becoming aware of its existence and how it is impacting our future. The 2019 Peterborough Engineering Symposium will focus on topics relating to AI and how it will shape our future within our current laws/bi-laws/standards.
