Panel Session (Wednesday 17.45-19.30)
What benefits can, will or should AI deliver to the world in the next 10 years?
Chair: Andrew Lea
Over the past 12 months there has been more discussion on the potential impact of AI. For this year's panel discussion, we are going to focus on the positive aspects of AI and will be asking: "What benefits can, will, or should AI deliver to the world in the next 10 years?"
This discussion will ask if AI is, fundamentally, a benefit to humanity?
What benefits might it bring? New forms of employment, better medical diagnosis, or safer roads perhaps?
Where will such benefits emerge? Will they be the deliberate result of careful research by industry or academia? And how might society encourage the beneficial aspects of AI?
The debate is intended to be interesting and entertaining. We will welcome opinions and questions from the floor.
The panel will be chaired by Andrew Lea of Primary Key Associates.
