Event description

Description

Join us on Thursday 1 August for the second event in our Shaping Futures Series: Human machine cooperation: Thriving in a digitally disrupted world. This thought provoking event will challenge your thinking about the impact of AI and digital disruption on our lives.

We will hear from Greg Cross, co-Founder and CBO of Soul Machines, an organisation that is leading the way in revolutionising the cooperation between human and machine to reshape customer and brand experiences.

While digital disruption through the adoption of AI and other technologies promises exciting benefits, it also raises ethical, moral and economic issues. Do we have the understanding to be able to create the regulatory frameworks needed for the widespread adoption of AI? How do we develop and retrain people with the skills they will need to maintain employment? How will digital disruption shape the future for education and universities?
