Should artificial intelligence be your enemy?

AI is all over the news these days, and is commonly represented as a destroyer of industries, a threat to both white and blue-collar workers, and a needlessly disruptive technology. 

But beyond the attention-grabbing headlines, do you really know about the technology that powers AI, why it’s getting somuch press coverage, and most importantly, how AI can have a positive impact on the progress of human civilisation? 

Tahir Mansoori, founder of wizdom.ai, debunks the misconceptions that surround AI, explains the interplay between AI and blockchain and why he views it as beneficial to societal development. 

He will delve deep into AI and explain the morality behind algorithms, explore how the superintelligence offered by AI can enhance our ability to discover and share knowledge, and how this can lead to greater collaboration that benefits humanity.
