Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and the Economy

Speaker: John Ptacek

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made enormous gains over the last several years, moving at a much faster pace than almost anyone anticipated. There have been great achievements and amazing things are happening.

However, just as automation has changed the economic landscape with blue collar jobs being replaced, Artificial Intelligence has the ability to do the same thing for white collar workers. For example, earlier this year, the world’s largest money manager BlackRock cut their workforce to rely on AI stock picking programs. The societal implications are huge.

In this talk, we will talk through the growth of AI, recent successes, economic overview of the changes resulting from the Information Age and talk through what a world full of AI looks like.
