Addressing the Societal Implications of an AI-Powered World

Artificial Intelligence will certainly be one of the most transformative technologies of the 21st century. While it holds enormous  potential in addressing some of our most pressing societal challenges, it will certainly impact many aspects of our day-to-day lives, including how we work and do business. This rise of machines that behave like humans is creating a great deal of uncertainty. What jobs will this new technology eliminate? What jobs will it create? How will we manage the ethical implications of AI? These are all questions we must contemplate as we head into an AI-powered future. Join Brad Smith, president of Microsoft as he explores these and other issues related to the rise of AI.
