The Power & Complications of AI

We are currently caught in Artificial Intelligence (AI) hysteria.  We are being bombarded in the news and on social media about the negative consequences of AI.

This keynote focuses on the nearly boundless landscape of artificial intelligence. In many ways, AI is just as much a new frontier for ethics and risk assessment as it is for emerging technology.  We’ll also discuss how this software revolution happened, what it will look like in the future and how it will change the process of building software.

Join Tim Huckaby in the discussion; a demo heavy keynote which will elaborate the power, the risk, the ethical dilemmas we are currently facing in AI and that we will face for many years to come.
