Beyond AI Anxiety: How to Thrive with the Intelligent Tech of Tomorrow (in person)
October 27 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us to discuss what you and your organization need to consider to prepare for—and thrive in—a new professional world driven by AI technologies. UNC faculty and industry experts will discuss the kinds of industry-wide policies are in play, legal and ethical considerations, and what rules of engagement individual organizations may need to consider. Learn about the core skills that professionals need to develop to succeed and work in concert with AI technology and structures that leaders can use to define and implement their AI approach. Following the presentations, you’ll work with your colleagues in industry-specific breakout teams facilitated by a UNC-Chapel Hill professor and systems thinking expert. Explore potential uses these technologies in your own field, how they could thrive, and what might limit their growth. As you diagram and uncover cause-and-effect relationships, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of new technologies and ways to encourage their adoption among organizational leaders and a changing workforce. Whether you’re a tech maven, business leader, policy maker, or general forward thinker, you’ll leave this session inspired and informed about how technologies can shape the future of work.
