AI & ESG for Corporates 2022

This online conference, hosted by the Centre for AI and Prosperity (CAP), will:

  • Examine how AI can accelerate the delivery of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) objectives
  • Explore what’s involved in creating a sound AI strategy, and then implementing it
  • Look to the future to anticipate the likely developments in AI and their broader impact on humankind.

Thanks to the generosity of CAP, all modules of this conference are now free to attend to members of London Futurists.

Access to the four modules will be via the Google Meet links in the agenda that follows. In each case, the Google Meet will be open 15 minutes before the publicised start time of the session.
