Bohemian Rhapsody: is A.I for real life or just a fantasy?

In January we had a very popular event with the topic "How Digital Transformation is Re-shaping China's Economy and Society?". The audience immediately asked for more and now Michael Chang, the CTO of Customer Operations for Nokia Greater China will continue his fascinating talk.

This talk aims to provide the audience a general tour of Artificial Intelligence from both technology and societal/economic perspective. Today A.I is everywhere whenever people talks about the future. It is commonly believed by scientists, entrepreneurs, and other professionals that A.I will be a GPT (general purpose technology) for the fantastic future with pervasive influence on how human lives, society, economy, and the world we all inhabit will be transformed. But bearing in mind, A.I is such a giant topic where there is never a one-size-fits-all profile and always arguable where it should go. Are we confident that A.I is developing under our control or, is it a "Pandora's box" as the renowned brilliant minds like Stephen Hawking has warned? This talk intends to serve you a starter on the path towards a breath-taking future.

Please join us for this breakfast event to find out more about this hot topic!
