Session Leader: Martin Ford

Martin is a widely published authority on AI based on his practical experience as a computer engineer of over 25 years’ experience.

He will explore the thesis at the heart of his best seller “The Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future”.

Our most important asset is our people. Yet the exponential acceleration in the industrialisation and deployment of AI will give us some fundamental challenges to overcome if we are to sustain a thriving business with people at its heart.

This session will help us identify the potential for AI to disrupt our human-based businesses should it be deployed unethically and irresponsibly. How do we guard against that? To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
