Event description

Description

Join us for a two-part fireside chat on Tuesday, September 26th with leading CEOs, CTOs and VCs in Silicon Valley as Sway Ventures and Digamma.ai discuss how AI is rapidly changing the future of work, and what kind of AI infrastructure we will need for the new AI era?

* Food and drinks will be provided.



Part I

Policy and AI: AI is Rapidly Changing the Future of Work.

AI-driven automation will transform the economy over the coming years and decades. The challenge for investors, founders and policymakers will be to update, strengthen, and adapt our policies and our thinking, to respond to the economic effects of AI. Beyond the hype, there are very real reasons to be concerned about the future of work in the age of artificial intelligence. According to some estimates, between 35 and 50 percent of jobs that currently exist in the United States could be automated over the next three decades. The rapid adoption and application of artificial intelligence, combined with access to big data and better hardware processing capabilities, means we are literally changing the face of blue and white collar jobs.

In this sense, the challenge of innovation is largely rooted in the linkages between technological acceleration and labor obsolescence. Interestingly, the better we become at systematizing work through technology, the more we see jobless growth and productivity rising together.

  • What do we, as citizens, leaders, and policymakers, need to do to ensure a successful versus a potentially turbulent and risky transition towards the new AI-driven society?
  • What sectors/industries/jobs are most at risk?
  • What does a future without the need for much human input look like?
  • Is the workforce bifurcating into two classes, a class of highly paid and highly skilled “alphas”, and a class of low-paid and low-skilled “betas”?
  • How do we make more work into creative work?
  • How do we design new approaches to learning and education so that the students and workers have the resources to evolve alongside technology?

Moderator: Ken Denman, Venture Partner at Sway Ventures



Part II

What Kind of AI Infrastructure Do We Need for the New AI Era?

We are on the brink of a new AI era in which current emergent AI technologies will quickly evolve, mature and will command the creation of a new and sophisticated technological infrastructure. The AI we have now is emergent and not fully production ready. It is primarily “custom craft”, not the “AI factory line” that we need to truly scale AI technologies.

  • What is an "infrastructure" in the context of AI (e.g. models, cloud agents, APIs, etc.)?
  • What kind of infrastructure do we need to successfully accommodate this new AI era and realize the full benefits of AI and machine learning on a society-wide level?
  • What are some of the immediate and long-term technical challenges (e.g. processing power) that need to be overcome to build and create this infrastructure?
  • Who will invest in creating this new infrastructure?What kinds of AI technologies will be the most important in this new era?
  • What new AI technologies will we see more of in the next few years?
