AI is Here. Where are we?

Join us for an insightful and pivotal discussion about AI, the impact on education, and more.

ChatGPT has captured the world’s attention about artificial intelligence shifting from theory to reality.

While most people are just beginning to consider how artificial intelligence (AI) will impact our future, the discussion surrounding AI, what it means for education and the future of humanity has been a part of the discourse at ACS Athens for some time.

Even more importantly, the artificial intelligence conscious citizenship (AICC) work spearheaded by the Institute of ACS Athens has sought to advance the idea that prioritizing the ethical implications of innovations of AI is perhaps more important than discussing how to utilize it.

More than ever before, it is crucial to engage in continuous dialogue to ensure that its advantages are distributed fairly, and its risks are mitigated responsibly.

For this reason, ACS Athens and its Institute, in cooperation with the American Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and its Innovation, Education and Entrepreneurship Committee, will host an expert panel discussion on March, 9, 2023, at 5 pm at the ACS Athens Theater and cordially invites the entire community to attend and participate.

Join us as we delve into the existing and future skill needs in the job market and explore ways in which the education system can respond as two panels bring a variety of perspectives from the fields of health, technology, business, shipping, and education.
