Artificial intelligence (AI) can reduce costs, improve efficiency, and potentially improve accuracy in many critical areas of life that impact humans. And yet, many of the tools of AI lack transparency, have inherent biases, and are difficult to govern. Where does this leave society and what are some of the known and unknown risks of what has come to be known as the "Fourth Industrial Revolution" underwritten by AI? This discussion will focus on AI and its implications for changes in humanity, the need for greater transparency, the growing use of AI in critical areas of decision-making, the importance of safeguarding against biases, explore issues about privacy, safety and security, and the future of work.
