Ignite2Disrupt - All About AI

Artificial Intelligence is reshaping our daily lives-driving cars, diagnosing medical patients, trading stocks, and teaching children. Michigan which is the center of the automotive industry has a future more than just cars. Today the automotive industry is changing as automobiles become equipped with devices and systems that are autonomous and connect you to the world. Pushing artificial intelligence towards its full potential will enable the state to become the leader, not only in autonomous vehicles, but across diverse industries.

We are on the cusp of the biggest wave of opportunity creation. Today Artificial Intelligence is a critical part of the software developers’ toolkit and a focus for mainstream companies. The AI revolution will bring a positive impact only if we work together with the machines. AI and Robotics will lead to more jobs, if we do it right. It is thus important to train people for new and emerging skill sets that will grow in demand as AI becomes more widely adopted. Entrepreneurs, business leaders and policy makers need to understand how transformative this technological wave is and how artificial intelligence will shape our economy.

Gartner says by 2020, Artificial Intelligence will create more jobs than it eliminates. The number of jobs affected by AI will vary by industry; through 2019, healthcare, the public sector and education will see continuously growing job demand while manufacturing will be hit the hardest. Starting in 2020, AI-related job creation will cross into positive territory, reaching two million net-new jobs in 2025.

Can Michigan become a leader in artificial intelligence? What ideas and innovations can benefit the state and the community through AI? The time is right for TiE Detroit to make Artificial Intelligence the focus for TiECon Detroit 2018, Michigan’s largest entrepreneurial conference.
