From healthcare to hospitality, finance to forensics, almost every business sector is already being changed by artificial intelligence — and its impact has only just begun. What opportunities does AI offer us, and what risks come with them? How do we keep space for human input in our increasingly automated futures — and how do we counteract the flaws built into AI by its all-too-human creators? Join NJPAC for a conversation about artificial intelligence, human needs and social justice at our next Business Partner’s Roundtable on June 12 at 8:30AM. We’ll be joined by experts in this field including Howard Wachtel, Senior Director, Head of UN and International Organizations Policy at Microsoft; Penny Abeywardena, CEO, Soft Power Strategies and NYU McSilver Fellow; and Shaz Hoda, Chief Data Scientist at PwC’s AI Factory.

What is the Business Partners Roundtable?

NJPAC’s Business Partners Roundtable networking forums feature high profile speakers discussing issues that directly impact today’s business — plus breakfast and a chance to mingle in the Arts Center’s beautiful Chase Room overlooking downtown Newark! The Roundtables are exceptional opportunities for employee-engagement, education, and substantive networking with like-minded colleagues. These forums are one of the most popular benefits of NJPAC’s Business Partners program, the leading corporate philanthropy program in the region. Other benefits include exposure to an annual audience of 550,000+ patrons, employee discounts of 20% off to select NJPAC-produced performances and exclusive client entertainment opportunities.
