PwC Distinguished Lecture
Data and AI promise new value creation opportunities for business and society. However they also hide new risks. Leveraging these technologies for the best while managing for the worst requires not only new organisational capabilities and regulations, but possibly also new mindsets.
What are some challenges organisations face in navigating this balancing act between opportunities and risks? What can - and maybe cannot - regulators do? Why is AI not like other technologies - and instead requires new ways of thinking about the role of technology in business and society?
The lecture will be followed by the Panel Discussion: The Challenges of AI for Business and Policy Making.
The 5th Forum’s Innovation Capacity Track aspires to showcase existing capacities in Cyprus regarding research activities, industrial expertise, and training initiatives in Artificial Intelligence.
