AI & Automation: Displacement, Opportunity or Both?

6:00 p.m. | Monday, November 13, 2017

Automation and artificial intelligence have been a hot discussion topic recently and for good reason: these new technologies have the potential to drastically change how we work and live. But do we have five years, or fifty, until we notice a significant change in our lives and who will be impacted when it occurs? Join us for a conversation about the effects that we can expect from this bold new frontier. Co-presented by the Kapor Center for Social Impact.
