Less Machine, More Learning: What You Need to Know About AI


As AI becomes more present in our daily lives and work, it may also force us to reflect on our very relevance—personally and professionally. This emerging technology promises to fundamentally alter how we communicate, make decisions, incentivize behavior, and spark change. Ultimately, will a machine's algorithms supplant human agency and community? This is no longer the stuff of science fiction.

It's time to embrace the realities of emerging technology and explore its impacts on how we communicate and how we lead. Join us for Comm Lead Connects 2019.
