The Open News Network presents keithCHATS: "Connecting the BOTS"


Mon Oct 21, 2019
6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
90 mins

Speaker: Keith McDonald, Founder of The Open News Network.

A new and wonderfully different workshop/presentation that unfolds like a documentary but is presented live using storytelling, video segments and song performance segues to explore Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, the Open Data movement and Social Media. We unmask and compare eastern and western AI pursuits with frankness and refreshing levity. It's part performance and part interactive seminar offering an opportunity to reboot your thinking about a future that is unfolding right before your eyes.

This program will cover and investigate:
Is AI the new space race, arms race and hearts & minds race all found in one (terrifying) microchip of a basket? Is Social Media spoiling our potential by spoiling us? What about our data privacy and digital ownership rights? Can Open Data save us? What is D-DATS-GOV and why is it important? What is happening in China right now? Why is China significant? How are Chinese citizens - and citizens of the world - being influenced & impacted?

Drop-In, all are welcome.
