Is artificial intelligence coming for your job – or does this technology open up more creative pursuits for humans? Join our panel of experts for a nuanced discussion on how AI is changing the way we live and work, potential applications for your industry, and how to address the risks inherent in this technology. Panelists will also share their insights on how the Seattle metro region can stay at the forefront of this growing sector.

According a recent Edelman report, 9 out of 10 tech executives agree that AI is the next technological revolution. More than half of the general population said that AI is already having an impact on the work they perform.  A separate study by McKinsey found that healthcare, financial services, and professional services are seeing the greatest increase in their profit margins as a result of AI adoption. The company predicts that the high tech, telecommunications, and financial services will be the leading industries to adopt AI by 2020, giving early adopters within these industries a competitive advantage.
