RESPONSIBLE AI: HOW CAN ETHICS KEEP PACE WITH NEW TECHNOLOGIES?

Hosted by Bank of America
Artificial Intelligence is here to stay. This game-changing technology already affects every facet of society, from our cars to our homes and businesses. And while AI and machine learning have infinite potential to improve our lives, there are also risks and questions about how policy and ethics can keep pace. As entrepreneurs rush to develop the latest AI, how can businesses, governments, and individuals work to create ethical guidelines in order for AI to serve people—and not the other way around?

NAVIGATING THE CURRENTS OF DISRUPTION

As Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield points out: in the 1960s, the average S&P 500 company lasted 33 years. By 2020, that number is expected to drop to only 12 years. How can legacy companies best navigate today’s disruption? In many cases, it comes down to building better teams. Edith Cooper, a senior finance executive who spent more than 20 years on Wall Street, most recently overseeing more than 30,000 people as Goldman Sachs’ global head of human capital management, will join Butterfield for this exploration of creating lasting, high performance organizations.

THE RECIPE FOR REVIVAL

In an appeal to a generation more focused on wellness than dieting, Weight Watchers President and CEO Mindy Grossman is transforming the 55-year-old company. And, she’s doing it amid increasing competition from traditional dieting businesses as well as free fitness tracking apps and lifestyle sites. Despite these challenges, under Grossman’s leadership Weight Watchers stock has continued to skyrocket since 2015 (also the same year Oprah Winfrey bought a 10% stake). How will Weight Watchers continue to tip the scales in favor of success?

Reinvigorating an Industrial Giant: It’s Not About “Fast Fail”

It takes really big bets that cost billions in investment and often require years to become profitable. United Technologies Chairman and CEO Greg Hayes will outline the unique transformational elements of UTC, an industrial giant that employees more than 200,000 people around the world in cutting-edge aerospace, defense, and commercial building technologies.

NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER’S MORTGAGE

Applying for a mortgage no longer has to mean endless forms and stacks of papers, since many banks have moved the process to the cloud.

Only 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women and only a handful are minorities. Meanwhile, studies show that companies with more diverse leadership perform better. Mellody Hobson, president of Ariel Investments, vice chair of Starbucks, and a director of The Estée Lauder Companies and JPMorgan Chase, says the time for corporate diversity is now. She says it’s time for companies to stop talking and start doing. Hobson shares with us the critical role diversity should be playing in your company’s reinvention—and how corporate America can set benchmarks to hold people accountable.

HOW TECHNOLOGY IS CHANGING FARMING

From GPS receivers to drones, technology has paved the way for smart farming and precision agriculture. Farmers now rely on sensors to monitor soil content, temperature and humidity in grain silos, and they depend on smartphones to check the commodity markets or take a photo of an unknown pest or disease. What are the benefits of these new technologies and how have they changed farmers’ work?

REINVENTING CITIES
Hosted by Siemens
By 2050, it’s expected that nearly 70% of the world’s population will live in cities, compared with 55% today.

Nonetheless, the smart cities of tomorrow offer limitless possibilities to innovate and lead. We’ll hear from experts working to reinvent our cities and learn how we can connect city data and use it to improve every aspect of urban living—from homes and buildings to water, roads, and public transportation.

PURPOSE-LED REINVENTION
Hosted by Allstate
An overwhelming majority of young Americans say that corporations should do more than make money. We’ll talk with leaders who have steered a purpose-led reinvention of their companies. They’ve integrated social good into their organizations’ business plans—and have reaped the rewards—since doing good can also help the bottom line. But, in an economy that values short-term profits, how do we reward companies stepping up to do good? And, how do we persuade companies to tell their whole story of prosperity and improving our communities, not just how they benefit shareholders?
