Artificial Intelligence is here, but are we all being wildly optimistic? Are trucks really going to be driverless in 5 years? Can AI really get me the toppings I requested on my pizza (not necessarily, you don’t always get what you thought you wanted!). The public has no idea what they are getting themselves into — the benefits, the horrors and the “meh”. Our five amazing expert panelists will delve into the nonsense, the reality, the timing and the $$ in a think-tank type discussion, followed by a fireside chat in a nearby bar for an even deeper dive with our resident AI Content Expert.


Our Expert Panelists:

1. Rachel Loui, International Growth, GOOGLE, and China Expert

2. Gale Brewer, MANHATTAN BOROUGH President, Tech & Government Expert

3. Nina Kaplan, Founder & CEO of BLOCKCHAIN Solutions and Sholz GmbH (the 2nd largest recycling company in the world).

4. Sep DiMeglio, Developer Audiences marketing manager, MICROSOFT
