Event description
​Join the Austin Forum on Technology & Society to learn from Austin AI leaders and experts.

About this Event

AI is a powerful technology capability that will transform business, education, government; it will revolutionize healthcare transportation, manufacturing, agriculture, and virtually all important societal systems. In Part 1 of this special two-part Austin Forum event, we learn what AI is, why it's so powerful, and some of the ways is it being used now--and will change the world tomorrow. In this second part, we will focus on how AI and humanity intersect by exploring some big questions:

How do help companies, schools, government, and consumers make the most of AI?

How do we make sure AI systems and applications are fair and inclusive, not biased and divisive?

What are the risks on the ever-increasing capabilities of AI systems--transportation, healthcare, security, defense, etc--and the impacts for humans and working?

What are the prospects for general AI, and what implications does that have for humanity?

How can we lead AI in the most positive, impactful directions, starting now, and what role can you, and Austin, play in the most positive future of AI?

Join us on July 21 for this second part (and catch up on/review the first event here).​

Matt Sanchez, CEO CognitiveScale

Dave DeCaprio, Chief Technology Officer ClosedLoop


As usual, the ‘doors will open' at 6:00PM, but this means the Zoom session will ‘open’ so that people can begin connecting and testing their devices and settings (and asking us for help via email or the Slack workspace if needed).

We look forward to ’seeing’ you online on July 21st. We will resume in-person meetings when it is safe, in conjunction with online meetings.

We welcome your participation! Please email us with your questions, answers, and prognostications in advance.

Admission to the Austin Forum monthly events is always free and open to everyone!

The Austin Forum accepts donations of used smart phones, tablets, and computers at all our events. Since the events are no online, please let us know via the ‘chat’ window during the event if you have devices to donate. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated devices can change lives and help close Austin’s digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways.
