AI Makes the Future More Human


Alex Spinelli


A study on the rise of automation shows that 70% of Americans who fear robots will take over the world. Leading technologists and politicians stoke fears and promote irrational expectations, creating an environment in which Artificial Intelligence is seen as both a panacea and a job killer. But, if embraced and used responsibly, it can serve humanity as a momentous new tool accelerating improvements in all parts of our lives. AI will enable businesses to become more human, helping machines understand our needs, automate our daily tasks, and build up our communities. Alex Spinelli will share how AI-led tech can scale our humanity to new levels-and how innovative brands are using it to understand people’s emotions, sentiments, and intents to deliver unprecedented connections with us all.
