Guest Speaker : The Future of AI and the enterprise

Gerd Leonhard Futurist, Humanist, Author of “Technology vs. Humanity”, CEO of The Futures Agency

Some say that the recent rise of AI represents a 'Sputnik moment' or is akin to the invention of electricity, potentially resulting in a 8-10x increase in global GDP over the next 20 years. Others fear that a global race towards Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) could spiral out of control and doom humanity. Futurist Gerd Leonhard will explain what is next for AI, GenerativeAI and LLMs such as ChatGPT, what is real or what might become real (and when), where the low-hanging fruits are for enterprises, and how to design a Good Future with AI. 

He will touch on topics such as digital ethics, standards and regulation, and the differences in cultural adoption, while pointing out parallels to what is happening with augmented/virtual/mixed reality, quantum computing and other imminent 'king-maker' technologies. As Gerd likes to say 'The Future is better than we think - we just need to design it wisely'
