Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) will have a profound impact on our society over the next 20 years. It’s important to ask ourselves how we are going to use it. Its arrival will bring many positives, and possibly many negatives, such as: military use; rapid disruptive changes in the job market; and new ways of data processing amongst potentially many other areas of life and business as we know it.


This session covers an overview of AI covering a range of information around the emergence of Artificial Intelligence and what its creators envisage for its purpose amongst society in the near future, based on research and analysis.
