"Consider This... Forum" Presented by the UNC General Alumni Association

As machines start learning more, and do more, their impact and influence will continue to grow. How is this technology showing up in our lives? Is this growing knowledge and influence something to embrace or to approach with caution? What happens to economies when new technologies emerge and begin to disrupt the old ways? Are there laws to regulate this rapidly developing technology and what ethical issues should be considered when looking at these issues?

Join us at this complimentary Consider This … Forum for a discussion on these issues and the growing influence of artificial intelligence and machine learning. It’s not just the technology that’s changing but the impact on our economies, the future of jobs and how governments and companies regulate and govern. We’ll examine different issues associated with this topic and provide different perspectives from those you have already heard.

  • Mohit Bansal, assistant professor and director of the UNC-NLP Lab in the computer science department at UNC
