Join IBM in exploring how Artificial Intelligence is improving our everyday lives. AI is helping people with disabilities, assisting doctors with cancer treatment plans, personalising student learning pathways, and tackling some of the world’s toughest challenges to improve outcomes and create positive change.

We’ll start this IBM-hosted session by showcasing how Artificial Intelligence is a force for good, drawing on a range of Kiwi experts and entrepreneurs representing a variety of industries. They’ll present their own unique perspectives in a series of lightning talks and then join a panel discussion. We'll close the session with Q & A, refreshments and networking.
