Description:

The future of AI (artificial intelligence) is promising, from new customer service models to digital entertainers the use cases are proving to be endless. But with such powerful technology comes the question of trust and social responsibility. For this panel, we learn at the heart of machine learning is human-centered technology, new avenues of experiential learning, and the ability to interact with the world in a way we weren't able to before

We will discuss questions including:

  • What does the future hold for the experience economy?
  • How can AI technology be built to be human-centered?
  • What are organizations doing to protect privacy, represent diversity, and prevent bias?
  • How can this technology lower the barrier of education and resources across communities?
  • How can AI  be implemented in new ways in times like COVID?
