Climate Change | DN Unlimited Open Forum powered by Alibaba Cloud

October 15, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm CEST


Thursday, October 15th at 6 PM CET – Join us for the Open Forum dedicated to Climate Change.

At DN Unlimited Open Forum on Climate Change, we will discuss one of the most pressing challenges for us all – the planet’s future. When used carefully, AI can help us solve some of the most serious challenges. However, it can also lead us astray if we are measuring impact using the wrong methods, mindsets, and metrics. 

"The metrics our society is using to measure success are obviously failing. My vision is that AI technology is used first for the benefit of our society and our planet."

John C. Havens, Executive Director at The IEEE Global Initiative
