IoD Evening Briefing: AI - Powering Change in Our Time

20 November 2019 5:00pm

The world is changing. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the key technologies that is helping to reshape how we work and live. It has the power to improve how we work, and even enable scenarios and new markets we couldn't previously contemplate. 

However, alongside the many examples of AI powering successful digital transformations, problematic scenarios have emerged from AI applications, delivering biased decisions or discriminating against minorities. Such outcomes do not just break ethical norms, but can have considerable negative impacts on an organisation's employee relations, customer satisfaction and share price. 

Clare Dillon will share some stories of AI-powered digital transformations and some practical tips on how organisations can take advantage of these powerful new tools, while avoiding potential ethical pitfalls.  


This event is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to our waiting list, please email skirwan@iodireland.ie.

Registration will take place from 17:00 with the briefing beginning at 17:15 sharp, followed by Q&A and refreshments.

IoD briefings may be eligible for CPD, including Chartered Director CPD. Please check with your relevant professional body.

Please note that photos and/or filming may take place at this event for media publication and for future marketing purposes. For further information, please contact: dp@iodireland.ie.
