KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Move 37 - Our Artificially Intelligent Future
  • K D Adamson - Futurist & CEO, Futurenautics

When Google’s AlphaGo Artificial Intelligence played ‘Move 37’ in its match against Lee Sedol expert commentators were stunned—it wasn’t a move any human player had ever made. Since then AI has beaten a human champion in a debating match, and can even predict when you'll die with 90% accuracy.

The ability to deploy AI successfully in business is rapidly becoming the differentiator between competitiveness and irrelevance, so both its promise and perils are riding high on the agenda. But what is the reality of AI today, where and why will it impact the shipping, maritime and logistics industries, where should leaders focus to maximise its potential, and what will this new era of intelligence, radical transparency and hyper-rationality mean for the businesses, jobs, consumers and lifestyles of the future?
