Influential leaders and industry experts will give an inside look at AI policy matters at GTC DC, the largest AI conference in Washington, from Nov. 4-6.
Key topics to be focused on include the national AI strategy, cybersecurity, healthcare, workforce training and diversity.
Can't-miss AI policy panels taking place at GTC DC include:
U.S. CTO Michael Kratsios will kick off a series of panels on AI policy with a keynote addressing how the federal government is supporting American leadership in AI.
Kratsios headed the development of the executive order on AI and leads the White House's Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence. He'll share updates from the administration on how the order is being implemented.
The next panel will focus on national AI strategy. Experts involved with the executive order will delve into the details of how it's being applied, and how private citizens can bring AI to their businesses.
The panel, moderated by David Luebke, vice president of research at NVIDIA, will share firsthand knowledge of the state of federal AI adoption and the investments being made in R&D, and discuss policies that are accelerating the implementation of AI in businesses and government agencies.
As technology improves, so do cyberattacks and massive data breaches. But cybersecurity experts will take part in a panel on how AI can help.
Moderated by Iain Cunningham, vice president of intellectual property and cybersecurity at NVIDIA, the panel features leaders in data security who will pinpoint how AI can prevent cyberattacks and how AI policy can safeguard data.
Healthcare experts will discuss how AI is changing the industry to provide better service and patient outcomes in a panel moderated by Kimberly Powell, vice president of healthcare at NVIDIA.
They'll share examples of how they've built programs for AI in healthcare and present strategies for using AI to accelerate the improvement of healthcare quality, cost and access.
AI is also changing the future of the workforce, which business leaders will discuss in a panel moderated by Tonie Hansen, who heads corporate social responsibility at NVIDIA.
Panelists will focus on how sensible policies can help create opportunities for current and future generations of workers. They'll share tangible advice on reskilling and upskilling employees into data science and IT roles, and preparing computer scientists for AI and machine learning, concentrating on how to do so across socioeconomic, racial and ethnic groups for a more diverse workforce.
