About this Event

Community Data Coop presents its continuing series of Education Spotlight events! Our next event is a panel discussion on Artificial Intelligence and Ethics.

The proliferation of AI in every aspect of our lives has resulted in many new and exciting advances, but the speed at which the field has developed has resulted in many concerns from privacy to labor replacement. Come hear from a panel of AI professionals as they discuss the true impact of Artificial Intelligence on our lives beyond the obvious pros and cons.
