It’s baaack! One of our most popular sessions ever will close RSA Conference 2018 with Dr. Hugh Thompson tackling artificial intelligence with three accomplished guests. Savior or Satan? Promise or peril? Friend or foe? Or maybe a little bit of all, depending on how and why it’s applied, who is applying it, and the ultimate end goals. Never before has a technology so rocked our industry and the world at large. The Hugh Thompson Show will bring together rock-star experts Dr. Dawn Song, Dr. Kate Darling and Dr. Sebastian Thrun to explore with fun, fear and fascination the many layers of artificial intelligence and its application and potential to help—or hurt—humanity.
