Conversations on Artificial Intelligence: Should It Be Trusted?

Artificial Intelligence and big data are dramatically transforming the way we work, live and connect. Innovators have begun designing AI solutions to advance society at a rapid pace, but often new technologies bring both promise and risk. How can we trust AI and safeguard society from unintended consequences to ensure a safe and human-centred digital future?  

On Wednesday, January 17, 2024, join the University of Waterloo in partnership with the Perimeter Institute for the TRuST Scholarly Network’s Conversations on lecture series where technology leaders from UWaterloo, Google and NASA will discuss how AI is transforming society and if we should trust these technologies.

Registration opens on Tuesday, January 9, 2024 at 9:00 a.m on the Perimeter Institutes events website.
