Stone & Chalk Masterclass Series – The disruptive impact of automation
In April this year, Firemark Ventures continued with its Stone & Chalk Masterclass Series by running a breakfast event on ‘The Disruptive Impact of Automation’.
Our keynote speaker Alex Taylor (Entrepreneur in Residence – Firemark Labs) alongside our expert panel with Stephanie Brownlee (R&D – Faethm.ai) and Tiberio Caetano (Chief Scientist – Gradient Institute) discussed topics such as:
- The advancements that have been made in AI and machine learning recently and the driving causes behind it?
- Both the benefits and risks that automation brings to how we live and work in society
- What start-ups, corporates, individuals and governments should be thinking about to prepare themselves for a more automated future
- The ethical and legal ramifications that arise from a world in which more and more decisions are being made by machines rather than humans
