The impact of artificial intelligence

In the 2020 lockdown we may have binged on Netflix sci-fi movies and series about AI, but how far away are we from creating real human-like intelligence? What is the impact of AI on our workplaces, our society, our country as a whole? What are the implications for our ethics, values or belief in God?

In South Australia, a dedicated space at Lot Fourteen has become home to several specialty organisations leading the way in AI.

Whatever our work context, we can weigh into this discussion because it will ultimately impact all of us. Join a panel of experts from a variety of fields including genetics, biochemistry, law, philosophy, theology and cyber security for a fascinating discussion
and Q&A.
