Announcement of The Cyprus Entrepreneurship Competition (CyEC 2020) winners
PwC Distinguished Lecture
Data and AI promise new value creation opportunities for business and society. However they also hide new risks. Leveraging these technologies for the best while managing for the worst requires not only new organisational capabilities and regulations, but possibly also new mindsets.
What are some challenges organisations face in navigating this balancing act between opportunities and risks? What can - and maybe cannot - regulators do? Why is AI not like other technologies - and instead requires new ways of thinking about the role of technology in business and society?
Keynote speaker: Professor Theodoros Evgeniou from INSEAD
The lecture will be followed by the Panel Discussion: The Challenges of AI for Business and Policy Making.
Innovation Capacity Track: Showcasing AI Capacities in Cyprus
