AI and the Influence of Automation at Work
Thursday, April 4, 2019, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Hosted at the offices of Arthur Gallagher, 470 Atlantic Avenue, Boston
While we’ve all heard that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is coming, it may be surprising to know that AI is in fact here, and has been here for some time. Whether we realize it or not, AI tools and technologies already have a large influence on our daily personal and professional lives – Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home, and even Search Engine Optimization (SEO) are a few of many examples of AI in action.
What has yet to be realized is the full scope of AI’s influence on our businesses and professions. We are often left to wonder whether AI will replace actual jobs, or meaningful pieces of our day-to-day working lives.
Join Boston Women in Finance on Thursday, April 4, 2019, 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. for “AI and The Influence of Automation at Work,” where our guest speaker, Margaret Olson, Senior Vice President of Engineering, Cogito, will discuss not only how AI is being utilized today to enhance working lives, but also offer ideas for the future of AI and our workforce.
Together with our attendees, Margaret will:
- Explain what artificial intelligence is (and what it isn’t)
- Share examples of where we can see AI today
- Offer examples of where AI can and will fit into our working life in the future
