Panel Discussion:- The Promise and Peril of Artificial Intelligence: Is AI a bane or boon for our society?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There have been two worlds w.r.t the outlook on AI and AGI with the media. On one hand portraying a grim future around killer robots, rise of the machines and the doubt of having intelligence govern or take critical decisions when we can’t even explain sometimes how it works. On the other hand, with the advent of newer tools, techniques, hardware and methodologies in ML and DL we have seen remarkable advancements in areas pertaining to technology, healthcare, agriculture, logistics, transportation and a multitude of diverse domains impacted positively by AI. The intent of this panel is to discuss their viewpoints on how they think AI can be a ‘bane’ and\or a ‘boon’ to society and what should we be looking forward to (promises) and be careful about (perils) in the 21st century!
