Artificial Intelligence is poised to transform the modern world. In the short term, AI is being deployed like never before to combat COVID-19 as governments, businesses, and health organizations leverage the technology in unprecedented ways to respond to the pandemic. In the long term, AI will represent a step change for the economy, how we live and work, and society at large. If widely adopted, AI could add $330 billion to the UK economy alone by 2030 as it optimizes existing sectors and generates entirely new ones. But with this potential also comes risk: from displacing members of the workforce to further exacerbating current inequalities.

Please join the US National Science Foundation, Axios, and the British Embassy for a special webinar panel discussion as experts from government, business, and research sit down to discuss how AI is being used in the fight against COVID-19, the role of international collaboration in AI, and how to reap the rewards of AI while avoiding the risks. 

Speakers:

Sana Khareghani, Head of the UK Government Office for Artificial Intelligence

Saška Mojsilović, Head of IBM Foundations of Trusted AI, Co-Director of IBM Science for Social Good

Dr. Yolanda Gil, President, Association for the Advancement of AI, Research Professor in Computer Science at the University of Southern California
