SUMMARY

Deputy CTO of Microsoft and former CEO of Wikipedia, Lila Tretikov, joins John Maeda, CTO of Everbridge, to discuss how AI impacts humanity and how to best leverage this technology to grow. They will discuss the evolution of art and artists' role in the age of AI. Lila will discuss how Large Language Models (LLMs) are redefining how we interact with machines today and how advances in this technology will enable non-developers to build applications and immersive experiences with simply a prompt. Lila and John will explore AR/VR/XR, practical applications for headsets like Microsoft's hololens, and how this technology will evolve in the future. Lila and John also draw on their vast experience to outline the most impactful business applications of machine learning technology today.

They also discuss how AI mirrors humanity and the importance of being intentional about what data we use to train our models to enhance ourselves best. We think of AI as learning from us. But in its growing capacity to extend beyond any person's memory, computing, or even historical lifetime, it enables us to explore the sum of all human knowledge and to further simulate the possibilities of our future.
