IPRS Panel Discussion: Preparing for Disruption in an AI Future
Organised by Institute of Public Relations of Singapore Partnered with SGInnovate
Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is a hotly discussed topic today, where communicators are debating about its impact on an industry already disrupted by digital technologies and platforms.
Whether we like it or not, AI is already part of the communications and media world. Invisible AI agents are today embedded in our office productivity software, notebooks and smartphones. Technology companies such as Microsoft and Google are creating AI breakthroughs at an accelerated pace, where we should expect AI to help us with our work, or perhaps do some tasks better than us in the near future.
Would AI truly make communicators better, or marginalize the profession? Would AI take away jobs eventually? How should communications professionals and leaders prepare for this AI future?
Join us in a panel discussion, where we will tackle tough questions related to the communications industry inevitably disrupted by AI technologies. The panel discussion will be chaired by Wong Voal Voal, Managing Partner of IN.FOM, a communications leader with more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector.
Date: 30 November 2018
Time: 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Venue: 32 Carpenter Street, Singapore 059911
