Sessions

Session 1

Understanding the Foundations for AI

Join us as we explore the importance of understanding foundational principles in AI and hear from leading thinkers like Brittany Kaiser and Dr.Larry Sanger. Dive deep with Chinedu & Pamela, as they equip you with ideas in breaking through with AI to equip your organizations to succeed. These innovators will reveal key insights and mental models that will enable you to push for change.

Session 2

The Implications — Governance and Leadership

Artificial intelligence may still be a nascent technology relative to its long-term potential, but we are already seeing the smoke signals and fault lines forming around a growing set of profoundly impactful—and potentially problematic—applications in society. We have also learned as a society over the last decade of the need for leadership from those outside the techno-scientific community. This session will examine the multi-faceted challenge of governing ‘the new electricity,’ with an emphasis on Europe’s role in providing guideposts for a world that appears ever more fractious.

Session 3

The Future is here

Listen to the disruptors and pioneers at the forefront of AI, who are building the companies of tomorrow that require us to reimagine and revivify the future. Ask deep insightful questions to unlock keys to their thinking, and courage as they continue to build into the unknown.
