Automated Societies Panel Discussion

21 July 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm AEST

Tram in Melbourne passing RMIT buildings

Join us for a cocktail function followed by a panel discussion featuring internationally recognised experts and industry participants.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has probably already made decisions about your life. Platforms use AI and other forms of automation to recommend music for you to listen to on Spotify, to personalise your news feed, and recommend things to buy on Facebook. AI and automated decision-making are also being used across society to solve problems as diverse as improving social services, creating more efficient transport, and providing greater access to healthcare. AI and automation are changing the way we live, and if AI hasn’t already made a decision that affects you, it almost certainly will, whether that be shaping what you see on social media, providing better disease diagnosis, or detecting if you are driving safely.

This panel will bring together internationally recognised experts and industry participants to discuss the opportunities of Automated Societies and explore the question: what do we need to know?
