Unpacking the AI Hype

Suddenly, science fiction seems to be coming off the page and screen and into our offices and lives. We're told AI will take away our jobs, or it will free us from the burdens of work. Systems are built to reduce human bias, yet in many areas bias remains or gets worse. If it all feels overwhelming, or you're not sure where to start, this session will get you up to speed with a brief primer, then we'll pivot to a case study before wrapping with a Q&A to crowdsource ideas on the future we want to make.


  1. Deepened understanding of what AI and related technologies are and are not
  2. Awareness of social and ethical issues arising from advances in AI and related tech
  3. Ability to apply 1 & 2 to personal, office, and institutional decision making
