5:00am-10:am PSTNortheastern University - Silicon Valley 6024 Silver Creek Valley Rd, San Jose, CA 95138
What should be the make-up of your successful AI team? What skills and competencies are essential? What role does organizational AI readiness play? And what are the employee development priorities of the future?
Hear from Kate Lazaroff-Puck, Global Manager of McKinsey Global Institute’s Future of Work and Michael A. M. Davies, Founder and Senior Partner of Endeavour Partners, who will frame the workforce implications of AI for organizations worldwide.
Listen to panel discussions with AI champions from Anodot, Biogen, Boeing, Credit Suisse, Genpact, JetBlue, Morgan Stanley, sweetgreen, Vertex, Viacom, the United Nations, and Northeastern University, about the challenges involved in implementing specific AI projects to improve decision making, driving employee productivity, delivering deeper customer insight, and identifying new business opportunities.
Joseph E. Aoun, the president of Northeastern University, underscores in his new book, “Robot-Proof, Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” the need to embrace this reality. His blueprint involves educating lifelong learners in three literacies: technological literacy, data literacy, and human literacy. Aoun noted, “Boston (is) in a perfect position to become the AI capital of the world” in a Boston Globe op-ed January 7th 2019. Northeastern University is at the forefront of translating these literacies into competencies and skills that are vital to every organization’s long-term talent development strategy.
Following the symposium, learn more about the development resources essential in an era of digital transformation and discuss with our guest speakers why machine learning and AI represent the “horizontal enabling layer that will empower and improve every business, every government organization, and every philanthropy,” as noted by Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.
Join us on February 12th at Northeastern’s Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex. A breakfast buffet and box lunch will be provided.
