The implications of AI with respect to employment, social and workplace impact and where it really stands today in terms of capability. Do we face the rise of the killer robots or are the bots going to be our best friends?
This panel discussion will provide insight into the considerations that need to be made before embarking on a journey to AI.
This talk covers some of the common hurdles South African businesses face in the adoption of AI, and how we've overcome these constraints. The effect of these systems on both the business and the people in the business are discussed, with the talk touching on as much change management as technical content.
