AI 2041: Ten Visions for our Future
AI will be the defining development of the twenty-first century. Within two decades, aspects of daily human life will be unrecognizable, as AI generates unprecedented wealth, revolutionises medicine and education through human-machine symbiosis, and creates brand-new forms of communication and entertainment. A new book of ten thought-provoking short stories imagines how AI will change our lives and challenge the principles of our economic and social order. Anyone interested in the shape of the future will want to hear organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Think Again, Adam Grant, speak with former President of Google China Kai-Fu Lee and celebrated sci-fi author Chen Qiufan about their innovative collaboration, AI 2041: Ten Visions for our Future.
This event is supported by the U.S. Consulate General of Hong Kong and Macao.
Authors will appear virtually.
