Tech Feast | Artificial Intelligence - When is Westworld here?
'Tech Feast’ is the new 90-minute lunch event that will leave you smarter about technologies that are impacting (y)our world. In the first series, we’re going to be exploring AI, Web3 and augmented reality with a special guest, and because it's Fora, tasty food and drink will be provided to wash down the insights. There’s also a practical surprise at each one - the first one is getting your devices professionally cleaned.
Hosted by Paul Armstrong, Founder of TBD Conference and author of ‘Disruptive Technologies’, each Tech-fast has three parts, the welcome, the talk and the fun bit. Each is as sit back or lean-in as you’d like. Everyone will get a ‘paracetamol card’, these are to write down what makes your head hurt on. We urge you to ask the questions you’ve always wanted. We know not everyone wants to put their hands up too so there will be a question box too.
Knowing what types of AI can affect your life and your business is business critical
As with all technology, it’s not the technology itself that is evil, but how it is applied. From Amazon to corner shops, AI is being pushed and pulled in different directions, the key is to know what’s Hollywood, what’s real and what can affect you. From fraud-detection to facial recognition, a lot in the AI space is impacting life as we know it now. Paul’s guest will be Rob McCargow, PwC’s Tech Leader.
Paul will be joined by Rob McCargow / PwC - Rob is Technology Impact Leader for PwC and knows where AI is heading. An evangelist for the responsible and ethical adoption of AI. Rob advises companies, governments and other global stakeholders on harnessing the opportunities of AI to drive innovation in a way that increases trust. Rob focuses on the issues and policies relating to the impact of automation on the workforce, the future skills agenda, and ensuring that the benefits to be delivered by AI are equitably spread across society.
