How will AI impact society?
According to a recent Forbes article, “Spending on research, development, and deployment [in AI] continues to rise, and debate over the wider social implications rages on. Meanwhile, the incentives only get bigger for those looking to roll out AI-driven innovation into new areas of industry, fields of science, and our day-to-day lives.”
Where will all this time, effort and investment take us? As AI continues to be more pervasive in our daily lives, from smart devices to facial recognition, what areas will it have the biggest impact? What ethical hurdles do we face with advancing AI applications? What do we need to do to overcome these potential pitfalls?
Join us for a lively conversation on these questions and more in the areas of healthcare and transportation.
