About the Event

With the rapid rise and influence of technology in our lives and society in general, how do we balance its promise and peril, especially in our civic life? How can we navigate the complex ethical, regulatory and economic considerations to ensure that technology serves the greater good? With major technology companies in our region, what is their role and responsibility for AI development? How do local governments and elected officials implement programs and policies to protect residents and minimize negative impacts? What are some practical steps individuals can take to take advantage of AI and protect themselves in the process? How can we as a community prepare for an unpredictable future?

Join us as we discuss these and other critical questions about artificial intelligence with local experts
