Jim Hagemann Snabe, co-author of the upcoming Tech for Life book, and Chairman of Siemens, will join a panel of industry experts at the Tortoise Global AI Summit on Friday 15th May.

The Tortoise Global AI Summit is a new annual gathering of AI experts, policymakers and individuals from around the world. It will hold a series of conversations over the course of the day’s virtual event that will help shape the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in a post-COVID-19 world.

At 12:00-12:45 BST, Jim Hagemann Snabe will join the panel exploring the topic ‘The business reset: AI’s role in the recovery’.

The panel will be asked to discuss whether automation and the movement towards robotics will accelerate as a consequence of the COVID-19 outbreak, and if a new way of working will emerge from the new business models organisations have had to adopt.

Following the panel, Thomas L.Friedman, NY Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning author, will be in conversation with Tortoise Media founder and editor, James Harding.

The event coincides with the general release of the Tech for Life book. For more information about the book, co-authored by Jim Hagemann Snabe, and tech entrepreneur, Lars Thinggaard, click here.

The forthcoming Tech for Life book outlines our vision for a world where technology works for us, not against us. It provides examples of how responsible technology is already being created and used. And it calls for leaders in technology to commit to the five Tech for Life principles. Tech for Life is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
