September 14 2023 Monthly Meeting

Artificial Intelligence: Hype Versus Reality

With the advent of ChatGPT, Artificial Intelligence has exploded onto the scene.  Every product now claims to be AI-enabled.  Companies are implementing AI in their operations and products.  This raises valid questions:

  • How much of this is hype versus reality?
  • How do I implement an AI project or service?
  • What are the legal ramifications of implementing AI?

We will explore these and other questions with a panel including Industry Leaders, a University Professor, and an Intellectual Property Attorney.  Join us for our September 14 dinner meeting at the Madison Hotel.  You will learn what to do whether you are implementing or just beginning to ponder Artificial Intelligence.

Here are our esteemed panelists:
