There is widespread uncertainty around advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and one of its major sub-sets, machine learning, particularly with regards to the technology's impact on society and the economy. Without a doubt, recent advances have been incredible. Advocates are right to envision a more perfect future. However, not everyone views AI development as unimpeachable progress. A common perspective envisions AI as a threat to jobs, privacy, and, eventually, humanity itself.


The problem is that both sides—futurists of blind faith and those warning of a cyber-apocalypse—often deploy hyperbole in support of their views. As a result, much of the current debate AI has become an either/or proposition. The truth probably lies somewhere in between.


Michael Frank will present on The Economist Intelligence Unit's recent research on the economic impact of AI, commissioned by Google.


First 15-20 minutes is for networking

Sandwiches and beverages included


Hosted by the People & Organizational Culture Committee and the Financial Services Committee
