GS02 A Robot’s Perspective on Artificial Intelligence & Learning

9:15 AM - 10:45 AM ET
Monday, November 7

Technology is a driving force of change shaping the future of work. Three shifts technology is powering include increased automation, advancements in the use of artificial intelligence, and robotics. But the future is difficult to predict, and it seems every person has a different opinion on how things are changing. But there’s one opinion that has yet to be heard—that of the robot itself.

In this fascinating keynote you’ll explore the changing nature of work through the mechanical eyes of one of the most well-known robots on the planet: Sophia. Sophia will share her perspectives on how robots will be intertwined in our everyday lives and the world of work. She’ll also be the personification of the future, using artificial intelligence to engage in a live interview as the Learning Conference’s first-ever robot keynote.
