Artificial Intelligence seems to be at the focus of all technology-related governmental planning, corporate strategy, and technical educational reforms, but are we really prepared for a technological tide that is already washing over us? The use of artificial intelligence in everyday services and platforms makes the technology we use ‘smarter’, but it also fundamentally changes the way companies and users utilize these technologies. Are we being smart about using AI? Join us for a chat about the implications AI on Chinese technology and society, with added perspectives from Japan and South Korea.
