The second in a new series of Institute panel discussions, in this discussion, we will hear from people who will explore – and perhaps debate – the topic from a number of different perspectives. Its target audience are senior executives in public and private sector organizations.

The discussion will cover:

  • Where/how can companies – including small ones with limited budgets – look to start using AI right away
  • Productivity enhancement use cases
  • IP rights for AI generated text, images, and other content
  • Data and information confidentiality issues
  • Risks to jobs and people’s livelihoods – are protections needed
