The advancement of AI technologies has given rise to concerns regarding ethics, biases, privacy, jobs and finally - regulation.
The speakers Lydia Chilton (Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Columbia University), Matthew Jones (James R. Barker Professor of Contemporary Civilization, Columbia University), Alison Lord (Global Head of Talent, Google Creative Lab), Mickey McManus (Autodesk Fellow, researcher, computer scientist, serial entrepreneur, and author of Trillions: Thriving in the Emerging Information Ecology) and moderated by Beth Comstock (former vice chair and CMO, General Electric, and author of Imagine it Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power of Change) discussed generative learning as a model for human and machine collaboration.
“Take risks, AI’s got your back” began the serial entrepreneur Mickey McManus, the one who inspired me to start this blog. He said to me in regards to his recent exit interview for a job "there is a possibility of losing your passion slightly by converting your weekend hobby into a full-time job."
