Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!
Are we catching up to make Star Wars a reality? Yes we are, according to Vivek Wadhwa, Distinguished Fellow and adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering. Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change the world forever; and as history teaches us, we can never go back. Join us this week as we discuss the meaning of work when robots can do everything, and we are quickly realizing what seemed like fiction in Star Wars. What will happen to the driver in driverless cars? Vivek Wadhwa argues (and we agree) that AI is changing the dynamics of life and that we are on the verge of solving the “grand challenges of humanity”. It is an exciting time for those who embrace it and a very bumpy one for those who have their heads in the sand. Join us for a lively discussion with Vivek Wadhwa, author and named one of the top 100 global thinkers and top 40 most influential minds in tech by Time Magazine.
Vivek Wadhwa is a globally syndicated columnist for The Washington Post and author of The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future; The Immigrant Exodus: Why America Is Losing the Global Race to Capture Entrepreneurial Talent, which was named by The Economist as a Book of the Year of 2012; and of Innovating Women: The Changing Face of Technology, which documents the struggles and triumphs of women. Wadhwa has held appointments at Duke University, Stanford Law School, Harvard Law School, Emory University, and Singularity University.
