Artificial Intelligence is changing the world

Our lives are already impacted by Artificial Intelligence, and the trend will continue.  So said four speakers who each brought a unique perspective to the sold-out crowd at the Artificial Intelligence Speaker Series March 27, 2019 at SAIT. All agreed the impact — and the possibilities — of AI are enormous and nothing to be feared.

VizworX CEO Jeff LaFrenz said AI is not necessarily taking over the world, but it is impacting jobs and it’s not a level playing field. He said $1 trillion is wasted every year in re-work and AI can help create efficiencies.
