MIT Technology Review’s
signature AI conference

May 22-23, 2024 | MIT Campus and Online

What now?
The intersection of innovation and uncertainty

The introduction of generative AI has unleashed a wave excitement filled with uncharted possibilities and unforeseen challenges. Executives already accustomed to the rapid pace of technology evolution are now grappling with the explosive emergence of generative AI. They find themselves at the intersection of innovation and uncertainty, striving to absorb the implications of this breakthrough, harness its powers, and plot a path forward.

Questions abound: What are the true capabilities of generative AI? How will it reshape industries? What ethical and regulatory frameworks must be established?

At EmTech Digital, we embark on a journey to explore the true impact of generative AI on business, society, and perhaps even the very fabric of our future. Save the date to join us at the intersection or innovation and uncertainty; sign up to be notified when tickets go on sale.
