Thriving in the emerging human-technology future ahead

An expert in Artificial Intelligence, Dr Ayesha Khanna will take us through the emerging phenomenon of human-technology co-evolution. In this talk, we will understand the implications of our complex and irreversible tango with science and technology, which will continue to impact all aspects of our everyday life. Focused on the future of work, the need for upskilling and understanding data, tech AI, and more, get ready to be inspired on how we educate ourselves, perceive our self-worth, enhance ourselves physically and mentally, and collaborate as businesses and communities.

We will learn:

  • How to go beyond: how and what will be the new human-technology collaboration? to probe further into what does it mean for me, my work and the society?
