The Future of Work: Human / AI Potential

“Technology is only a tool. It is an amazing tool, and one that has had on balance, a profoundly positive impact on the world. But it is still only a tool. It can only ever reflect our values back at us.” – Dr Vivienne Ming

Technology is changing our lives. Changing the way we work – how we work, where we work, what we work on and who does it. Artificial Intelligence and machine learning are having a profound impact on society, on our economic potential, and on our human potential. In New Zealand, we must be forward-thinking about how we work, how we build and grow our workforce, and how AI can support our health and wellbeing. Within our companies and communities, we need to choose that future now.

In her keynote, Dr Ming will discuss how her own and others’ work in developing AI for good — treating diabetes, predicting bipolar, precision farming, and much more — comes with complex ethical questions. “I don’t build artificial intelligence, I build augmentive intelligence,” says Dr Ming. “This is not about targeting ads better or optimizing supply chains. This is about human potential, and why AI can be such an amazing force for humanity – why it can truly improve the world.”
