All-star panel at NJPAC: How AI is changing world

Representatives from Microsoft, Soft Power Strategies and PwC at event, which is part of North to Shore Festival

From health care to hospitality, finance to forensics, almost every business sector is already being changed by artificial intelligence — and its impact has only just begun.

A special business partners’ roundtable at New Jersey Performing Arts Center — as part of the North to Shore Festival — will examine the issue at 8:30 a.m. June 12.

The panel:

  • Howard Wachtel, senior director, head of UN and international organizations policy at Microsoft;
  • Penny Abeywardena, CEO, Soft Power Strategies and NYU McSilver Fellow;
  • Shaz Hoda, chief data scientist at PwC’s AI Factory.

The group will discuss a number of topics, including:

  • What opportunities does AI offer us, and what risks come with them?
  • How do we keep space for human input in our increasingly automated futures?
  • How do we counteract the flaws built into AI by its all-too-human creators?
