Socio-Cultural and Political Implications of Artificial Intelligence Summit
April 3, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - April 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
This two day Summit will showcase the research of Global Engagement Seminar (GES) Program students. Interactive student exhibitions will be on display, inviting participation from the broader Waterloo community. We hope to engage in important conversations about the impacts of Artificial Intelligence, such as automation of jobs, corporate ownership, biases of algorithms and privacy concerns. The objective is to contribute towards the development of meaningful responses to timely global issues.
The summit also includes the round table discussion, “Why Artificial Intelligence Matters” and keynote addresses “Artificial Intelligence and The Future of Work” featuring David Jones and “What is Missing is Still There” featuring Mimi Onuoha.
