Artificial Intelligence: End or Beginning of our Humanity?
Some say that in the future, machines will be able to perform almost any job in the world as well as a human. HECTOR School alumna Britta Daffner from Intake 2014 will join us to explore the answers to questions like: So will artificial intelligence soon replace humans? And what challenges but also opportunities does this pose for us and our humanity?
As Senior Manager and Practice Leader Data & Technology Transformation at IBM, Britta Daffner enables companies to exploit the full potential of data. Prior to that, she helped build the AI & Data Science business in IBM's consulting division since 2016 and worked on the group strategy and its execution as Executive Assistant to the Executive Board.
Britta is also a consultant on innovative technologies and career development, author, speaker, executive coach, and mentor.
All our Alumni are invited to register. But for those who will register with their current adress until October 1st, 2021 (Friday): You will get an extra surprise (lunch) package to spend the lunch break together with us.
What is your opinion on AI as the end or the beginning of our humanity?
Please note: The Stammtische are offered first for alumni, then also current students. Within these groups, places are available on a first come, first served basis - there are only 30 open slots for every Stammtisch!
If you want to come, please register as soon as possible, else there might be no slots left. Please let us know if you do not manage to come, so that your place will be free for others.
If there are less than five registrations, we will cancel the event a few days upfront.
