This session will explore the promises and pitfalls of robo-advising. The FinTech revolution has brought with it many advances in asset management, including the area of dispensing personal financial advice without the interaction of human advisors.

AI and the Future of Work

Sponsored by the Georgetown University Alumni Association

Artificial intelligence is an integral part of our daily lives, and its presence will only continue to grow in a world that has been indelibly changed by COVID-19. Between organizations that have gone entirely remote and unemployed workers in need of new opportunities, to the shifting landscape of matching talent with opportunities, many are looking to artificial intelligence to mitigate the issues we face, and to build a more prepared and effective workforce. While it is vital for us to lean into the inevitable power of AI, we must also recognize and explore the ethical implications of AI. Where does our humanity end in a world that is ever-increasingly tied to AI?

Join Paul Almeida (P’16, ‘20), dean of Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, and alumni in the world of AI for a look at how AI is shaping the future of work and what steps are being taken to prepare the next generation workforce.
