In recent years, Artificial intelligence (AI) has infiltrated numerous aspects of our lives. We’ve seen this first-hand with driverless cars, the diagnosis of diseases in healthcare, translators and machine-enhanced customer service experiences – and AI is improving fast.
There are reasonable fears that AI will ultimately replace human workers throughout the economy. The concerns are understandable, work is changing due to automation and AI – but it is not going away. While AI will radically alter how work gets done and who does it, it’s largest impact will be in complementing and augmenting human capabilities – not replacing them.
The value of collaboration is infinite. The promise of intelligent technology cannot be ignored and should no longer be viewed as the subject of machine versus human. The evening discussions, held under Chatham House Rule, will bring together a select group of key stakeholders to explore how humans can most effectively augment machines, how machines can enhance what humans do best, and how to redesign business processes to support this collective approach.
