Description - 

As technology advances, we all wonder how it may continue to impact our profession. One big topic in the field is Artificial intelligence(AI). AI can bring superpowers to ALL professions, from roughneck professions to high tech positions,  everyone’s lives will be touched by AI.  

 What is AI? How is it impacting our careers? and will this technology take over our jobs?.  These may be some questions you may have had about this topic.

In this presentation, you will learn about AI in our profession, how the area of Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a very hot topic for your practice and other AI focal areas you have not heard about yet. Finally, we will be addressing concerns about ethics and biases. AI won’t be about robots taking over our world or your job, but it is essential to note its benefits, overall impacts, and how the biases within the data may be of concern.

Join us, learn and discuss. This presentation will have a Q&A segment
