Presentation: All In On AI: Realities of Artificial Intelligence and its Impact on Meetings
In this session we’ll use a little human intelligence to get our heads around AI and how it impacts our lives and our meetings now, but even more important how it projects into the near future. We will take a practical look at how some of these systems are implemented for events, and where we can shine as experienced professionals.
- Understand what artificial intelligence is, and many of the ways it can be applied to your meetings and events.
- Discuss the Internet of Things (IOT) and how AI works within this framework, and how it can be deployed for meetings.
Look at security and privacy issues surrounding AI. Is it the best tool ever, or the most dangerous?
