Global Conference 2017

Artificial intelligence, whether it's cognitive computing, machine learning or deep learning, is altering almost every aspect of our lives today. Along with the enhancements that AI brings, it also poses dangers to our civilization. This panel will explore the many benefits and potential hazards that AI delivers across multiple industries. Questions will range from:

  • As machines become more powerful and learn to "think" on their own, what industries will transform the most?
  • What are the most exciting applications for AI over the next five to 10 years?
  • As artificial intelligence systems become more complex, are the leading players following best practices, ethics and transparency?
