Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnerships conference pulls in the crowds

Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership Conference

Over 300 people attended the annual Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) conference at Chateau Impney, Droitwich, in December. The Conference was hosted by BBC Midlands Today’s presenter, Mary Rhodes.

Keynote speaker, technology expert Dave Coplin discussed the potential that technology offers inside and outside of work, and tackled some of the concerns increasingly being voiced about Artificial Intelligence (or ‘Automatic Intelligence’, as he referred to it).“It’s not about humans versus machines,” he said. “It’s about humans plus machines.”

Referring to worries on wide-spread job losses when AI is adopted by more businesses, he disagreed. AI won’t stop job creation, he said. It would just change the job roles available.
