Speaker Hall

In our speaker hall we’ll have experts tackling the subject ‘AI: Friend or Foe?’ What does AI really mean for employers and employees, for future jobs? We know there’s a shortage of tech savvy people so there’s lots of potential. How do we take advantage of that and, conversely, with predictions that whole professions will be taken over by technology and AI, what should we do as employers or employees to protect ourselves?
