Impact of AI on society
COVID-19 has brought the world to stand still and has had a major impact on society. During the crisis, we observed how exponential technologies are used towards the benefit of society, and if not regulated properly, can lead to severe negative outcomes as well. This is true for AI as well. Therefore, the theme of this year’s summit is Impact of AI on Society and throughout the session, we shall explore the topic of AI and its impact through multi-disciplinary lenses, both optimistic and cautious.
