Made by Humans?

08 June 2023 5:30pm

As the rapid evolution of AI increasingly impacts the landscape of modern life, how are businesses adapting to include it within their day-to-day processes and to what degree?

With seemingly limitless potential for producing creative content with minimal input, talent or traditional skills what is the outlook for professional, human makers?

And, when tech thought leaders like Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak call for stricter oversight and even an immediate suspension of current AI development, what are the implications in the commercial world?

These are some of the questions we put to our panel.
