Artificial intelligence has the potential to disrupt the ways we work, communicate, and live. How can our cities of today best prepare for, and best succeed in, the age of AI? How can they address the risks of increasing inequality – both within and among cities? How can they not only preserve but enhance the human aspects of life in an increasingly machine and data-driven age?
These are some of the questions we will address in Davos. On February 22, the Oliver Wyman Forum will lead a panel discussion, moderated by Kevin Delaney, Editor-in-Chief and President, Quartz. The distinguished panel includes:
Professor Susanne Bruyere, Professor of Disability Studies, ILR School, Cornell University
Hon Mr Paul Chan, Financial Secretary, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
Ambassador Michael Froman, Vice Chairman and President, Strategic Growth, Mastercard
Olivier Gremillon, Vice-President, Booking Home, Booking.com
Professor Carlo Ratti, Director, SENSEable City Lab, MIT
Professor Wei Shyy, President, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
We will bring you highlights from the discussion on the Oliver Wyman Forum Twitter feed. We look forward to sharing our ideas on City Readiness with you.
