AI Supremacy: Winning in the Era of Machine Learning

  • Tech Incubator at Queens College 65-30 Kissena Blvd CEP Hall 2 Queens, NY 11367 United States (map)

Overview of Talk

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is impacting nearly every facet of human life from globalization to jobs, financial services to the role of governments, the nexus with cyber risk to spying, and from China’s quest for AI supremacy to healthcare.

The race for AI supremacy is about more than establishing a competitive position in the global marketplace for innovative applications and technological prowess – it is about anticipation, adopting the right mind set, and having the right resources, a futuristic orientation, and the ability to execute. While few organizations and governments have achieved the right mix to lead in the race for AI supremacy, those that have already possess a substantial lead. Those that have not are simply falling further and further behind.

Can those that are not already in the race, get in the race with any realistic hope of catching up? Can those who are already in the race ever catch up with the leaders? Who will win in the end? What does AI mean for jobs in the future?What are some of the other social implications with the rise of AI? Should AI be feared or embraced? These are among the many questions that will be discussed at this event.
