12 p.m. - 2 p.m. ET⎜9 a.m. - 11 a.m. PT

Hosted by AImpact, The Great Debate poses this deliberately hyperbolic question to challenge assumptions and dive into interesting issues, all while having a laugh. The event features a formal debate structure to ensure depth but does so with a wink, inviting panelists and attendees alike to explore the complexities of AI in a light and accessible manner.

Choose your side: are you an Eternal Optimist or a Devil's Advocate?

Devil's Advocates

The Devil's Advocates

Ever the skeptics, the Devil's Advocates aren't buying into the "AI will save us all" narrative without a thorough cross-examination. They ask hard-hitting questions about AI ethics, job displacement, and the potential for unintended catastrophic outcomes. While they may paint a darker picture, their cautionary tales are grounded in research and real-world examples. Their aim? To challenge the status quo and ensure every silver lining is inspected for a cloud.

The Eternal Optimists

If you find yourself entranced by the promise of AI—its potential to revolutionize healthcare, solve climate change, and create a world of abundance—then you're in good company. The Eternal Optimists are the torchbearers of AI's positive impact on humanity. Armed with data, use cases, and a vision for a brighter future, they're ready to make their case. But don't mistake their optimism for naivety; they're well-versed in the challenges and prepared to defend their standpoint.
