Thanks to Dall-E, Stable Diffusion, Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, and plenty of others, AI technologies are now more visible to the public than ever. But even though there have been numerous AI advancements and AI-infused products over the past decade, many organizations are still looking to understand how AI fits into their path to innovation. Eric Schmidt is an accomplished technologist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist and is well known for leading Google in its early days, from 2001 to 2011, and helping it to scale its infrastructure, diversify its product offerings, and maintain a strong culture of innovation. Today, he runs Schmidt Futures—a philanthropic venture—and advises governments and societies around the world on how to build a brighter future through technology.
Gerrit De Vynck, AI and algorithms reporter for The Washington Post, will moderate a fireside chat between Schmidt and Scale Founder and CEO Alexandr Wang, where they will talk about today’s advances in AI compared to 10 years ago. Schmidt and Wang will share their thoughts on what the next generation of AI companies will look like, what the proliferation of AI technology will mean for big tech, startups, and government, and how to push AI forward responsibly.
