Hosted by CapCHI
AI is transforming the world. When we see a hybrid of intelligence, that is, human intelligence and AI, co-existing in our daily work and lives, should we be more excited or concerned? How do we mitigate the negative aspects of embracing AI and what type of control can we apply? Taking a forward-thinking approach, this talk aims to explore future directions in this new era and broaden the horizon of humans when working with machines.
