Event Overview

Much has been talked about in the past year about Artificial Intelligence, a rapidly evolving technology that has been under research for decades. We have seen the unveiling of chatbots that write scientific papers, legal briefs, and news stories, sending shivers to the spine of every scientist, lawyer, and journalist. But should we really worry?

On the other hand, some posit that, if used appropriately, AI can be a revolution for education, journalism, science, and other areas of human knowledge. FTC chair Lina Khan recently said that AI can deliver critical innovation but also “turbocharge fraud and automate discrimination.”

The panel of experts will provide the basics to understand what AI really is, and what it brings to our societies but also discuss the potential bias in AI data and the controversial use of copyrighted and creative material to educate the technology, among other issues.
