We’ll share key takeaways from a Northeastern University-Gallup survey of attitudes towards artificial intelligence, covering more than 10,000 respondents in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. It’s the first survey to reveal a cross-section of opinions about the impact of A.I. and automation on three of the world’s leading economies, including thoughts from leading industry executives.
We’ll follow up with a moderated discussion: leaders in business, government, and academia talking about artificial intelligence, its likely effects on how we live and work, and the skills and learning options needed to thrive in an increasingly A.I.-powered global economy.
And if you can’t attend in person, join the conversation on social media, at #FacingtheAIFuture.
