One of the most exciting and talked about technologies today is Artificial Intelligence - we believe it’s going to change human life in enormously important ways.
(PRWEB) August 08, 2015
Social media thought platform, Ideapod, and Australian leadership organisation, ADC Forum, have joined forces to create a Scholarship Program that will award US$2,000 to the student who creates the best idea on what Artificial Intelligence will mean for work.
Applicants will post their ideas on Ideapod.com using the platform’s 1000 character limit. The 10 ideas with the largest number of ‘supports’ will be submitted to a group of ADC Forum judges, who will then decide a winner.
Ideapod and the ADC Forum launched the program to stimulate debate on Artificial Intelligence and the implication it has for the future of work.
Justin Brown, co-founder of Ideapod, explains: “One of the most exciting and talked about technologies today is Artificial Intelligence - we believe it’s going to change human life in enormously important ways.”
He added: “Whether you are optimistic or pessimistic about what Ray Kurzweil has termed the "Singularity" - that moment when the intelligence of one machine outstrips all humanity - we can all agree the effects will be tremendous.
“The more optimistic view is that machines will make us work more efficiently and only remove the jobs that people don't need (or want) to do, freeing us to pursue the creative instead of the repetitive.”
