Artificial intelligence


DFW Alliance of Technology and Women’s Annual Executive Leadership Forum (ELF)

  - Thursday, 9.13.18 -

 Topic: “Hey Virtual Assistant: Should I worry about Artificial Intelligence?”

- The Impact of AI on Business and Our Everyday Lives -

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is powering the fourth industrial revolution and has been called the "new electricity” being powered by huge volumes of data. The global economic impact of AI applications is expected to reach $2.95 trillion by 2025, and we’re already seeing AI being incorporated into areas and tools like medical diagnosis, personal assistants like Siri, self-driving cars, and online translators. 

However, as machines are getting closer to mirroring human-like abilities, they are also absorbing the deeply ingrained unconscious biases in our society, deepening the divide between over- and underrepresented groups in artificial intelligence.

Today, AI is powering robotics with rules that are programmable or machine learnable that can then “inherit" moral character; however, they cannot yet incorporate the incalculable, uncontrollable sequences of emotion or moral sentiments.  But what about the foreseeable future?  Will robots choose a moral character for themselves?

Organizations need to learn and be mindful of the moral boundaries when developing AI solutions to automate tasks and enhance overall business performance and operational efficiency.  Leaders must understand the global societal and economic impacts of AI innovation and the responsibilities that go with its implementation.  New leadership skills will be needed to empower teams with transparency and accountability, yet with the practical wisdom of doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time!

Join DFW Alliance of Technology and Women (DFW ATW) and our subject matter experts for the annual Executive Leadership Forum (ELF) for a lively panel discussion on the Artificial Intelligence Revolution.

Date: Thursday, September 13th, 2018, 6:00pm-8:00pm (with networking starting at 5:00pm).
