Who should decide whether you get that job: a human or a computer? Will I still have a job? How will AI change the employment landscape?
Hear four of New Zealand's Artificial Intelligence experts take on these questions and more as they debate the shared futures of technology and human employment.
This debate will be preceded by a more general introduction to our series and a specific debate on AI's impacts on education on Tuesday and Wednesday nights respectively.
First hour for speakers and Q&A, followed by networking and nibbles in the Mezzanine foyer.
You can drop into this event at any time.
