A Celebration of Ada Lovelace University of Warwick

Event Details

Ada Lovelace, a 19th century mathematics and computer science pioneer, is celebrated globally as a role model for women in STEM. In March 2022, a statue of Ada Lovelace was installed in the City of Westminster.

 

To celebrate the legacy and impact of Ada Lovelace, the Kindness Studio is hosting art and AI activities involving a community of artists and scientists to celebrate her legacy on 13 March 2023 at Somerset House in London. To make this event as accessible as possible, the University of Warwick and The Alan Turing Institute can support travel to/from the event when it takes place. Register below to secure your ticket and receive support with your travel.

Please join us to make connections and create further reaching and foundational networks in our Research and Turing community. This will be a day of celebrating Ada Lovelace and to realise the broader applications and importance of Data Science and AI, including in history and art, and for reaching further into public engagement.

The day will involve presentations on Ada Lovelace’s legacy, AI, and art, along with exhibits from AI and artists with a prize competition. It is designed to encourage networking and collaboration between the AI, science and medicine and artist communities. The event comes at a time when, according to the UK education hub, women account for only 11.4% of STEM starts (2019/20). Warwick and The Turing are pleased to support the travel support and access to this event.

The event is designed to…

  • Celebrate Ada Lovelace and discuss how the sculpture in Westminster will elevate woman progression in STEM
  • Provide a networking platform for fellows to exchange ideas
  • Promote creativity through art and breakthrough in science
  • Promote gender inclusivity within the STEM community.
