3 speakers, 3 stories and each one has 20 minutes at their disposal. Three fantastic experts will face this challenge on September 19 when we talk all things AI.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here. It is no longer a subject restricted to selected research institutes, academia and lab experiments. On the contrary. We now live in a world of intelligent, digital assistants. These new actors are everywhere. Behind the scenes, they power everything from search engines and cameras in our smartphones to robots in factories and autonomous vehicles. All thanks to the ongoing progress in the fields of machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics.


But AI technology also raises risks that people are concerned about, from algorithms filtering news and putting us in filter bubbles to fake news and unfair matching of jobs, for instance.


What are the ethical implications of deploying AI in the workplace and what does it mean for the future of work?


Join us to discuss the implications of AI on society and the challenges involved!
