Doomsday prophecies about the takeover of artificial intelligence are commonplace in the news. But is artificial intelligence as much of a threat as it’s made out to be? Could it help us make life better? In this talk, Kai Riemer will ask critical questions of the hyperbole surrounding claims of machine “intelligence” and discuss its impact on how we, as humans, work, and what we think about ourselves.
For Kai Riemer, technology presents opportunities and benefits for rethinking work and organising, but always comes at a price and occasionally has a dark side. From disruptive technologies to enterprise social networks, Kai’s research has resulted in insights and management frameworks used in workplaces all over the world. He’s currently a Professor in Information Technology and Organisation at the University of Sydney Business School.
