Event Details

Baker McKenzie are thrilled to be hosting UPWARD’s event on AI and the Future of Work on Thursday 27 September.

UPWARD kick off their new Executive Learning Series with Philip Alexander, an Artificial Intelligence expert and editor of the AI column for StartUp Digest, demystifying AI and leading a session to help you understand how AI may be used to support your organisation’s commercial objectives.

– What is AI – history, fact, fiction, future
– The major trends impacting the future of work
– How to identify the challenges for your company and your job
– How to future-proof yourself

With so much being written about Artificial Intelligence, it is hard to know which way is up. The goal of the evening is to equip you with an understanding of the key terms so you know your Machine Learning from your Reinforcement Learning and Neural Networks. Further, once the groundwork has been established, we will explore the impact these developments could have on the future of work, and how to prepare yourself and your companies for this.
