Artificial intelligence has the potential to be the most influential new technology since the invention of electricity, bringing speed, agility, and accuracy to processes that previously consumed tremendous time from workers. However, the transition to AI for some systems also presents the risk of reinforcing bias and trends of social inequality. From commerce and healthcare to education and global engagement, advancements in AI are changing our capacity and potential as the human race. Join WorldDenver as we host Yoshi Okamoto, technology executive with over 20 years of experience managing and directing artificial intelligence and data-intensive ventures, for an exclusive briefing on AI trends and transforming global education.
