Presented byIntel

It is time to change the narrative from human / AI competition to human / AI collaboration. AI can be utilized to amplify human potential, to assist people in everyday life, from education to manufacturing to remote work and supporting vulnerable populations. We need to change the focus from working on problems that AI can solve to re-thinking how humans and AI can collaborate to solve the most important problems.
