Join the IoD ERP/Digital group for a webinar session with Lord Clement-Jones CBE
Our keynote speaker is Lord Clement-Jones CBE, the Chair of the House of Lords Artificial Intelligence Select Committee.
Intelligence (AI) is spreading through our day-to-day lives and will likely continue to do so.
However, when innovation threatens the traditional values and ethics that are benchmarks for society, politics and economics today – who should provide the stewardship?
Our thought leading speakers will seek to share their experience and vision for a future transformed via AI and technologies. They will address the disruption caused by Technological innovation, currently driven by tech companies and increasingly consumed ubiquitously because of the benefits it brings.
We can expect insights into how AI and Digital Technologies can be used to bring about positive change and what can be done to regulate their feared downsides.
