Artificial intelligence and Machine learning are no longer a thing of the future. This technology is central to so many core technologies already enhancing so many aspects of our daily lives.
Digital life has profoundly transformed human society. The complete digitalization of the entire human species is within grasp and this is truly a double-edged sword, offering previously unimagined opportunities and unprecedented threats.
Will AI make people be better off than they are today?
Camps are widely divided, but progress is accelerating more and more. Our Think Tank will consider how to prepare for “Technological Singularity” the hypothetical point of inflection where the technological process becomes so advanced as to cause unforeseen and irreversible changes to human society. This extends into considering the notions of future human-computer interaction as technology achieves “superintelligence”. Some experts suggest we could break through this critical point in about 25 years.
As we work to create a better world, partnerships are everything. Whilst being grounded in business and commercial reality, this Council is perhaps one of the most challenging ones as we redefine the boundaries of what it means to be human in this age of digital symbiosis, and we prepare for machines to surpass our capabilities.
What all of us have to do is to make sure we are using AI in a way that is for the benefit of humanity, not to the detriment of humanity.
The Tortora Brayda Institute Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Robotic Process Automation Council is divided into three councils: Technology Channel & Alliances, Ethics and Government. Each council runs in parallel and meets on a quarterly basis. At the start of the calendar year, council members vote on the focus areas below. Tortora Brayda Institute for Partnership Excellence will provide council members with broad insights from expert panel research on focus areas, these will form the basis for the discussions and deliberations of the councils. The objective will be for the council to produce and publish a quarterly report outlining best practices and recommending actionable plans that would benefit the private and public strategy.
Each council will also vote for four UN Sustainable Development Goals to discuss one at each quarterly session and brainstorm on how partnerships can help achieve the goals, and what each member can do to influence this success.
