MKAI June Inclusive Forum | Responsible AI Event Series – Part 3: AI in 2030
June 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm BST
This MKAI Inclusive AI Forum Series discusses the big themes around Responsible AI. The June event examines what to expect from AI in 2030
June Forum Objectives: At the MKAI Inclusive AI forum in June, we seek to discover how different thought leaders and experts think about AI at the end of this decade. We ask our speakers to share with us their views on how the industry will progress and change. Answering questions such as; What will legislation look like in 2030? Will AI be fairer and more equitable, or will the true power of AI be in the hands of the few? Will the same technology companies be leading, or will this decade shake them up? Will Data and AI be decentralised by 2030, what will be the role of blockchain? Will users own their own data?
Our expert speakers make the subject approachable and comprehensible to help all of us improve our AI-fluency and understanding of the domain.
