Come hear Christina Richards talk to us about the Human-Artificial Intelligence partnership!  Catch it live before it becomes the trending TED Talk!

Wine and appetizers will be served.


People are often afraid of new things. Whether we are talking about the introduction of the “horseless carriage”, or the deployment of the first humanoid robot, as a society we have a special skill for finding new things to be worried about.

In this interactive session, Christina will discuss all the reasons why we don’t need to fear an Artificial Intelligence uprising. Instead, over the next century the human-machine partnership will continue to grow and evolve into one of the most important expansion points in human history.

Join us to learn how the Human-Artificial Intelligence partnership will drive the future, and how in just the next few decades that partnership will generate amazing leaps in abilities, quality of life, and prosperity for both humans and AI.


The Hipower expert series is a series of sessions for Hipower alumni‘s where experts within our network speak on current topics in technology, society, and business. It’s a chance to share our knowledge, promote our expertise, and continue to build bonds among our network.
