Keynote: The state of AI for digital professionals and higher education

We are at the dawn of the most profound technological shift in human history.

AI is creating boundless opportunities while sowing chaos and uncertainty in society. It is changing everything about how we communicate, sell, learn, teach, design products, start and grow businesses, hire and develop talent, manage tech stacks, build strategies, allocate resources and drive performance.

Big tech is battling for AI supremacy while pouring billions into AI infrastructure, models and applications. AI startups are building tools that can generate text, images, videos, audio and code. Entrepreneurs are emerging from everywhere to launch AI native companies that will disrupt industries.

Businesses and higher education institutions are scrambling to evolve and innovate. And this is the least capable AI we will ever know.

Come explore what's possible with Paul Roetzer, a leading AI author, entrepreneur and speaker. You'll learn what matters now to you as digital professionals and your higher education institutions, and consider what may come next.
