Future-Ready? Understanding AI’s Impact
Nov 26 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Future-Ready? Understanding AI’s Impact @ Great Hall, Hart House | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

Artificial Intelligence has made tremendous strides in recent years, and its impact has been felt both inside the university and across society.  Yet despite its successes, there remain significant technical challenges, as well as serious societal and ethical challenges.  Today’s students, across all disciplines, need to be prepared to both take advantage of the opportunities afforded by AI and meet the challenges it poses to us all.  Join us for a discussion on how AI is changing the nature of work during the first Future of Work Speaker Series featuring Sven Dickinson.

Doors open at 5 p.m. Light refreshments provided. Networking opportunities. See Event Poster
