Artificial intelligence has dominated the news cycles over the past year, with unprecedented advancements that are shaping education, business and our daily lives. But as this technology is developed, how should society develop rules, regulations or standards to handle this new landscape? Join us on April 25 for an engaging discussion with Dr. Alondra Nelson, a leading global expert on the intersection of science, technology and society to try and answer these important questions.
