    • Summary

      What is artificial intelligence (AI)? How will AI impact your organization?

      AI is a hot topic impacting both college campuses and recruiting offices. Join industry thought leaders as they dive into what AI is and what it is not. Participants will explore AI tools, opportunities, and trends in the workplace. Absorb high-level discussion on how AI can assist in strengthening current relationships and can be leveraged for your operations, and gain insight into current uses of AI.

      Additionally, attendees will leave with a new understanding of AI and how it could influence the profession. Explore how AI can be used in various modalities depending on organization size, need, and goals—understanding this tool is not a substitute for people or merely a time-saver.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Define artificial intelligence;
      • Formulate methods to integrate AI within your organization; and
      • Appraise uses for AI in the future.
