Third annual EU lecture: Out Thinking Humans

ICAEW hosted the third annual EU lecture in Brussels on 29 June 2017, centering on the rise of artificial intelligence and its implications for labour markets across the globe.

This year’s lecturer, Professor Moshe Vardi from Rice University (Texas), provided an overview of recent leaps in AI technology and predicted that machines will increasingly take over complex tasks, leaving little for human workers to do.  The annual lecture is ICAEW’s flagship event in Brussels, bringing together ICAEW members, EU policy-makers, and the wider stakeholder community to discuss disruptive developments and innovative ideas.
