Contemporary NED Event, May 2018

Following on from the success of the Contemporary FD Summit in March, we will be co-hosting the Contemporary NED event in May alongside Smith & Williamson and NEDA. This year’s theme is:

Robots in the Boardroom – Fact or Fiction

AI (artificial intelligence) is a hot topic at the moment in and out of the boardroom. Whilst there has been a great deal of discussion about robots taking the jobs of humans in manufacturing and automated industries, should board directors be worried about the security of their roles? In May 2014 there was a lot written about a robot called Vital being appointed to the board of directors of a Hong Kong based venture capital firm, Deep Knowledge Ventures. In reality, it was a computer algorithm sifting through large amounts of data including financial information, clinical trials for particular drugs and previous funding to assist the human partners in their investment decisions. So is the imminent replacement of human workers by AI fact or fiction?

During the course of this afternoon we will hear from experts in the area of Artificial Intelligence who can shed light on the threats and opportunities available to us via AI. It is sure to be a very interesting afternoon.
