Exploring the ways AI can help solve some of today’s most pressing challenges

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is already part of our lives. It’s built into the operating systems in our phones, it’s the algorithms that define our social media and search feeds, and it detects fraudulent withdrawals from our bank accounts. But the possibilities of rapid technological expansion are causing many discussions.

At The Walrus Talks Artificial Intelligence, experts representing different industries come together to explore the rapidly changing phenomenon of AI. Whether you are for AI or against it, there are a lot of questions about the technology: Can it help save lives when used in medical settings? Can it help combat climate change throughout the world? How can we ensure that responsibility and safety are at the core of AI development? What is its potential to protect businesses from threats or cyberattacks? And perhaps most importantly: Where do we find the middle ground?

Join seven speakers at The Walrus Talks Artificial Intelligence as they tackle questions with no easy answers and present us with different ways to face today’s most pressing challenges.
