AI: The Human Impact for Corporate Leaders

Artificial intelligence is the topic du jour; however, most discussions focus on its technical promise and implications, rather than illuminating the human side of the AI revolution. How will AI impact not just how business is done but also how people are hired and managed? How will it shift the ethical and legal frameworks by which a company operates?

Key takeaway: An AI “code of conduct” created with peers and experts to serve as a framework for starting and enhancing related discussions within member companies.

Lab advisors: Authorities in related academic, legal and regulatory roles.

future

These labs have been proposed by World 50 members and are potential future lab topics. Please let us know if you are interested in participating.
